Who Owns Life? by David Magnus

Book Description

With the mapping of the human genome and the development of cloning and other genetic engineering techniques, scientists have embarked upon a whole new era of biomedical research and with it a maze of complex ethical and legal questions. This excellent collection of articles by scientists, ethicists, and legal experts analyses the convergence of biotechnology and intellectual property legislation, which has given rise to these new moral dilemmas. It will serve as a valuable reference work to give educated lay readers a starting point to make their own judgements about matters we will all face in the near future.
