About this title


Examines the procedures and uses of DNA fingerprinting as a method of identification in forensic science.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- A wordy, boring distillation of magazine and newspaper articles. Lampton's conclusion is that DNA fingerprinting may become a major forensic technique after it has been more thoroughly and accurately tested. Much of the text is too complex for young readers but too flawed to be used as a serious reference. It is awkwardly written, repetitious, and padded with blurry, meaningless, black-and-white photos. The technical explanations are often marred by cutesy unscientific images such as, ``chromosomes are a library,'' a virus ``hijacking the protein . . .,'' a ``DNA horse race.'' Although it predates DNA techniques, Stuart Kind's Science against Crime (Doubleday, 1972; o.p.) is more likely to foster forensic science careers because it is well written and has excellent, informative photos and diagrams.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
