Tuesday, 10/19 - The Future of Genome Sequencing with Dr. Bekiranov

Hello Hello,

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

-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!
