Ethical Eye - The Human Genome
- Council of Europe (COE)
Research on the human genome is opening up a wealth of possibilities in terms of understanding human evolution and developing medicine. In this volume of the new 'Ethical eye' series, ten international experts look at the topic from different angles, providing factual information about what the human genome is, how genomic research is affecting industry, how it is being used to improve medicine, the ethical implications of this research, what this research tells us about our origins and our relations to animals, and whether the genome should be protected against commercial use.
Ethical Eye series
Scientific and technological developments are rapidly transforming the world in which we live. With progress and change, however, the human race is faced with new dilemmas. Hidden behind the jargon, to what extent are we aware of the impact these advances are having on our lives?
Starting with the human genome, Council of Europe Publishing's new thought-provoking 'Ethical eye' series looks at the crucial issues behind some of these key developments. The series is written with a wide readership in mind, and will be of interest both for the specialist and the non-specialist.
