Perfect for an upper level seminar or course, this casebook traces the legal impacts of genetics across the legal spectrum--from family law to medical law to forensics. It addresses international and federal regulation of genetic research; medical applications including prenatal testing, pharmacogenomics, and gene therapy; paternity testing; intellectual property rights; and the use of genetic technologies by social institutions, including law enforcement, courts, insurers, employers and schools. The 3rd edition newly covers Octomom and President Obamas stem cell directive. No scientific background on the part of the students or professor is required.
