Genes are made up of DNA-the code of life. They are made of sequence of chemical with the initials A,C,G,T. Our cells are divided into somatic cells which make up the working parts of the body and the sperm cells which transfer the genetic material to the off-springs. Gene therapy involves the transfer of a therapeutic or working gene copy into specific cells of an individual which will repair a faulty gene copy.
