Containing a diverse collection of multidisciplinary ethical and legal expertise, the essays in this volume explore the highly controversial issues surrounding the use, storage, exchange and sale of the the very ""stuff"" of which we are made - human genetic material.;The text focuses upon the issues of DNA sampling and testing, consent and confidentiality, banking policies, and genetic epidemiology and diversity. Since financial and technological pressures are inextricably linked to human genetics research, commercialization and patents are also examined.
