Solving intractable questions of evolution, medicine, and genetics is now easier due to computer assisted methods permiting the rapid analysis of molecular sequence data. These advances have exposed ethical and policy concerns. How would genomic information be used and by whom? Should individuals be able to make decisions regarding their own genomic data? How accurate are these genetic tests and how should they be regulated? These and other ethical conundrums are the subject this book. Bioethicists, biomedical, nursing and allied health students will find this book helpful and tersely engaging in exploring the complexities of modern evolutionary, genetic and biomedical data.
