Synopsis

The much-anticipated sequencing of the human genome made global headlines in July 2000, as scientists culminated a ten-year attempt to decode the genetic makeup of human bodies. In a two-hour Nova special, Cracking the Code of Life, viewers follow this race to finish one of the most exciting chapters in the history of science. While this remarkable achievement may have profound implications on the prevention and treatment of disease, it also opens up new areas of concern. Genetic manipulation may indeed eradicate previously incurable disorders, but will our expectations propel us to a need for flawless humans? ~ Alice Day, Rovi
