    "Viewers without some prior knowledge about the field of DNA research would find it difficult to absorb the wealth of information this video delivers. Over 25 scientific, and rather technical terms are thoroughly defined both in the script and with clear titles onscreen. Crisp, colorful graphics, both still and animated, and several film clips of microscopic views of molecules enhance the explanation of DNA functions and the replication process. Transitions are delineated by revolving titles and a cleverly chosen slot machine sound effect. Many different ethnic groups are represented in the examples provided. Topics covered include: how DNA information is used, how it functions, what it constitutes and tries to predict, and the direction genetic engineering might take in the future. Both the transcription and the translation of RNA are covered. RNA and DNA are contrasted. Assuming students have some familiarity with the subject of DNA, this could serve as an introductory overview or as a review of the material."
