About this book

The past decades have seen a rapid development and increasing development of genetic tests. This development will have a major social, political and ethical impact on society.

Genetics from Laboratory to Society details practices of genetic testing and discusses its future role for insurance and the workplace. By tracing the work of medical professionals, but also clients, their family-members, insurance companies, employers, unions and government involved, the book shows how due to the introduction of genetic testing responsibilities are redistributed.
