Description

This book covers the ethical, legal, and policy impact of human genetics across a broad range—from research ethics to medical malpractice law to forensics. It is perfect for an upper level law school, graduate, or undergraduate seminar or course. It addresses ethical, legal, and policy issues of contemporary significance, including the regulation of genetic research; medical applications including prenatal testing, pharmacogenomics, and gene therapy; intellectual property rights; and the use of genetic information by law enforcement, insurers, and employers. No scientific background on the part of the students or professor is required.
