DNA autoradiogram and foetus. Conceptual computer artwork of a foetus surrounded by a bubble with a pattern resembling an autoradiogram (columns of small white bands). The autoradiogram (also known as a 'DNA fingerprint') could represent the foetus's modified genes. This image could also represent genetic cloning as the autoradiogram could be another individual's genes, which the foetus has a replica of. Except for identical twins, no two individuals have the same genes. It could also imply testing the foetus's genes for genetic disorders (prenatal diagnosis) such as Down's syndrome.
