Importance of Science (DNA)
DNA which is also known as deoxyribonucleic acid is a complex molecule that has the necessary information that is used to build and maintain an organism and nearly every cell in a multicellular organism possesses the full set of DNA required for that organism. In this talk, we are going to look at the various ways in which DNA has been beneficial to individuals and also to the society. One of the ways includes disease diagnosis and treatment and this is whereby those diseases that were seen to be lethal and their treatment nonexistent or unsuccessful, the study and research of DNA has led to breakthrough drugs and treatments for patients with serious diseases. Drugs have been able to be customized so that they may be able to complement a person’s biochemistry and genetic makeup and this is due to the fact that individuals are susceptible to certain diseases.
When it comes to paternity and the legal impact DNA has been quite crucial and this is because the paternity cases have great impact on families and children all over the world and through the use of DNA the paternity of a child can actually be done and therefore it will have a significant effect on the child’s upbringing. DNA has played a very crucial role when it comes to capturing culprits who may be involved in cases such as rape cases and other cases and therefore it has led to such kind of culprits being convicted. It shows that the presence of DNA is very important because it has brought about a lot of solutions in the forensic world.
The impact of DNA in agriculture is very important and this is because it has enabled farmers being able to breed animals that are more resistant to certain diseases and at the same time are able to produce more nutritious produce which has contributed to a reduction in micronutrient deficiency especially in developing countries. A lot of research and study has been put on the discovery of DNA that has brought about the revolution of medicine, agriculture, forensics, paternity and many other crucial that areas in the society today and it will also lead to new discoveries in the future on DNA. DNA has been quite beneficial to many individuals and also to the society in general and therefore it has been of assistance in making very crucial decisions not only on the medical field but also in other areas of the society. In this talk, we have been able to look at the various ways in which DNA has been of importance to not only individuals but also the society as a whole.
