Full text not available from this repository.


The genie is out of the bottle. A whole new world of genetics research is underway with its exciting potential for a better understanding of heredity and genetically inherited disease, with opportunities for prevention, management and cure. But the current explosion of human genetic information has the potential for abuse also, for damage to rights, privacy and fair treatment for individuals and vulnerable groups. This book brings us up to date with important contributions from the authoritative Encyclopaedia of the Human Genome on the urgent social, legal and ethical aspects of the Human Genome enterprise, accessibly written and introduced for the undergraduate, postgraduate and general reader.
