About this book

In 1992 the University of Iowa Humanities Symposium provided a public forum to examine the moral, conceptual, legal and practical issues in modern genetics that are crucial to all of us. This book is a collection of essays taken from those presentations, and explore the historical background, philosophical implications and ethical issues related to the Human Genome Project, and other developments in modern genetics.
