Genetic Transparency? : Ethical and Social Implications of Next Generation Human Genomics and Genetic - image 1 of 1

about this item

Through seven essays, genomics, humanities, and social sciences specialists from Europe and Canada consider who has or should have access to personal genomic and genetic information. They explore the metaphor of transparency in general and genetics contexts; the process of DNA sequencing in genomics; anthropological issues relating to who the subject of genetic responsibility is; personal genomics and its governance; the ethics of genetic disclosure; the regulation of newborn screening programs and research in whole-genome sequencing; and ethical issues in the communication of genetic transparency. Earlier versions of the essays were first presented at a workshop held at the U. of Lübeck, Germany, in March 2013. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
