Dr. Bekiranov will join us in the Learning Studio on Tuesday the 19th, and we will also be providing lunch, so please bring your questions!
Here are a few articles to stimulate discussion:
-Art Caplan and Craig Venter debate the ethics of large DNA databases in The Economist.
-An Op-Ed in Reason Magazine argues for less federal regulation of consumer genome tests.
-An overview of the ethical implications of the Human Genome Project from ActionBioScience.org
-Summary of an NIH/National Human Genome Research Institute Roundtable on "Policy Implications for Research and Medicine."
-"Research ethics and the challenge of whole-genome sequencing." Yay for primary literature!
See you there!
