Importance of Science (DNA)
The DNA which is also known as the deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule that is known for its complexity and contains the necessary information that is normally required in order to build and maintain an organism and in almost every cell in a multicellular organism has the full set of DNA that is required with 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.
DNA has played a vital role when it comes to paternity and the legal impact and this is because paternity cases have an enormous impact on families and children around the world and through the assessment of DNA the paternity of a child can be identified which will be able to determine the 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.
Agriculture especially in developing countries, DNA has brought about the ability for farmers to be able to breed animals that are more resistant to diseases and this has enabled them to be able to produce even more nutritious produce that has brought about a decrease in the micronutrient deficiency. More study and research is put on the discovery of DNA and this means that it will continue to revolutionize medicine, agriculture, forensics, paternity, and many other important fields in society today and this will lead to more discoveries in the future. The science of DNA has been able to be seen that it not only affects the medical world but also the society that we live in and therefore a lot of decisions have been made due to the discovery of DNA. In this discussion, we have had the opportunity to be able to see the various ways in which the science of DNA has been beneficial to individuals and also to the society.
