Description

This book covers the legal impact of genetics across the legal spectrum--from family law to medical malpractice law to forensics. It is perfect for an upper level seminar or course. It addresses ethical and legal issues of contemporary significance, including the regulation of genetic research; medical applications including prenatal testing, pharmacogenomics, and gene therapy; paternity testing; intellectual property rights; and the use of genetic information by law enforcement, courts, insurers, employers, and schools. No scientific background on the part of the students or professor is required.
