What People are Saying About This
"For topics that include reproductive choices, genography, and behavioral genetics, some of America's forward-looking professors offer practical ways for teaching the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genetic research. This text should be required reading for at least one course on every campus!"
Prof. Isaac M. T. Mwase, National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care
