Benefits of Science (DNA)
The deoxyribonucleic acid which is also known as the DNA is a molecule that is complex and has the relevant information that is required to build and maintain an organism and almost all the cells in a multicellular organism has the full set of DNA that is required within that specific organism. In this discussion, we are going to talk about the various ways in which DNA has been quite productive to our society. One of the ways includes disease diagnosis and treatment and this is whereby those diseases that were seen to be lethal and their treatment nonexistent or unsuccessful, the study and research of DNA has led to breakthrough drugs and treatments for patients with serious diseases. Drugs have been able to be customized so that they may be able to complement a person’s biochemistry and genetic makeup and this is due to the fact that individuals are susceptible to certain diseases.
During paternity cases, DNA has played an important role and this is because it has enabled the paternity of a child to be able to be known and for this reason it has a great effect when it comes to the child’s upbringing. Another important area where DNA has really played a crucial role is during forensic science whereby DNA is able to be used to capture culprits that have committed certain crimes such as rape cases and other cases too. This means that DNA has been used to solve a lot of cases that would not have been solved if it were not for the discovery of DNA.
Agriculture especially in developing countries, DNA has brought about the ability for farmers to be able to breed animals that are more resistant to diseases and this has enabled them to be able to produce even more nutritious produce that has brought about a decrease in the micronutrient deficiency. Due to the fact that most studies and research is still being carried out on DNA, it follows that DNA will continue to revolutionize medicine, agriculture, forensics, paternity, and many other important sectors in the economy and it will lead to new discoveries in the future. DNA has played very important aspects and not only in the medical field but also in our societies and it has brought about individuals being able to make serious decisions based on DNA results. In this discussion, we have had the opportunity to be able to see the various ways in which the science of DNA has been beneficial to individuals and also to the society.
