The Governance of Genetic Information: Who Decides? by Heather Widdows, Caroline Mullen
English | 2009 | ISBN: 0521509912 | 248 pages | PDF | 3,9 MB
This volume maps the areas of ethical concern in the debate regarding the governance of genetic information, and suggests alternative ethical frameworks and models of regulation in order to inform its restructuring. Genetic governance is at the heart of medical and scientific developments, and is connected to global exploitation, issues of commodification, commercialisation and ownership, the concepts of property and intellectual property and concerns about individual and communal identity.
