Caption: Illustration of the double helix strand of DNA undergoing genetic engineering, or gene therapy, as it is also called. Advances in understanding and the manipulation of the genetic code have set the stage for altering a person's genetic material in order to fight or prevent disease. Gene therapy involves the introduction of genetic material, either RNA or DNA, into a person's cells in order to effect a positive outcome in disease fighting and prevention. The three floating bases here represent the RNA sequence of 3 used to transmit information to cellular structures that build proteins (one shown here, in the center). The pattern of active and inactive genes in a cell, and the the resulting protein composition, determine what type of cell it is and what it can and cannot do.
