The discovery that the human genome contains 32,000 genes shocks scientists who had originally thought that there would be hundreds of thousands of genes. However, the completed mapping of the human genome does not mean we understand everything about it yet. Decoding and understanding DNA is going to take much more research. This has sparked an interest from genetic scientists around the world in the role of proteins in genetics. This exciting new research has brought new light into the battle against cancer, which is address in this film. Iceland is highlighted in this film because its unique and isolated gene pool is of interest to geneticists studying the human genome. The film also contains animations to better explain the process of DNA replication and construction.
