Gene therapy is an experimental technique that could be a solution to genetic problem by targeting it on the grass roots level source. In this therapy first, a defective gene is replaced by its correct copy, this could be a virus. Second, the virus, now delivered and inserted into the cell, the information is read and then RNA and proteins are built. Thirdly, these proteins and RNA will be released and will do their jobs in the cells. This method could help alleviate the overuse of drugs and surgery.
Describe how gene therapy works to treat mutated genes. Explain the process in a clear, concise format.
