Caption: Designer baby. Conceptual computer artwork of a human baby, an image of man by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and a DNA double helix (left), representing a designer baby. Theor- etically, genetic screening of human embryos for desired characteristics such as eye colour or sex would allow parents to "design" a child. Screening for inherited disorders is widely performed, how- ever screening on non-medical grounds is highly controversial. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the genetic material present in every body cell. It comprises two spiralling strands (red, blue) of chemical units called nucleotides. The sequence of nucleotides makes up an individual's genetic code.
