Abstract

This first research project deals with the Human Genome Project, the genetic sequencing exercise of humanity. The extraordinary international project will add new, and undo old, knowledge about our evolution as a species. The second tackles controversy as Dr Jeff Lever raises the issue of whether we teach school pupils and scholars evolutionary theory properly, and with enough depth.
