are genetic instructions and it's as if we have a series of books that provide instructions for human life.
v/o: The books, he says, can pave the way to cures for countless diseases.

--sot Watson Some of our genes are not optimal and some are just

downright lousy. Often you get what's called genetic disease. So if you want to understand genetic disease, what you do is to compare the book of someone who's sick and someone who's healthy and see where the differences are.
ON Cam/Jacqueline Adams: The book will have page after page of sequences of the letters A, C, G and T....some 3 billion letters representing the proteins in a human being's DNA.
v/o: Scientists think that 99.9 per cent of our genes match...but for a company like Celera, which has been racing with the government to finish the human genome, the book could reveal new techniques in preventing and treating illness.

--sot Craig Venter/ Celera: The spelling changes in the colon cancer

genes predict pretty accurately what degree of risk somebody has in their life for developing colon cancer. That's very empowering information because colon cancer, if it's caught early is very effectively treated.

ALL THAT ADVICE YOU GET ABOUT STAYING OUT OF THE SUN TO PREVENT SUNBURN AND SKIN CANCER TAKE ON SPECIAL IMPORTANCE IF YOU ARE TAKING CERTAIN MEDICATIONS.

MEANING THE MEDICATION MAKES YOUR SKIN EQUISITIVELY SENSITIVE TO THE SUN-- AND AS A RESULT YOU CAN GET THE WORST SUNBURN OF YOUR LIFE OR A REALLY ITCHY RASH WITH JUST A FEW MINUTES OF SUN EXPOSURE. AND THERE ARE DOZENS OF COMMON MEDICATIONS THAT CAN BE PHOTOSENSITIZERS -INCLUDING :
