Gene therapy. Conceptual computer artwork of a drug capsule filled with DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), to depict a gene therapy 'pill'. Gene therapy is the genetic treatment of medical conditions caused by malfunctioning genes. The DNA helix in the capsule represents the corrected gene which will allow the person taking the capsule to function normally. The columns of yellow bands in the capsule are a genetic autoradiogram, also known as a 'DNA fingerprint'.
