Gene therapy. Conceptual computer artwork of drug capsules filled with DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), to depict gene therapy 'pills'. Gene therapy is the genetic treatment of medical conditions caused by malfunctioning genes. The DNA helices in the capsules represent the corrected gene, which will allow the person taking the capsules to function normally. The columns of yellow bands in the capsules are genetic autoradiograms, also known as 'DNA fingerprints'.
