Description
Barash is head of a private consulting firm founded in 1994, which specializes in genetics, ethics, and policy. She has worked with leading public and private institutions worldwide on the ethical integration of new genomic technologies, has published numerous articles and books, and has taught ethics at several American universities. Her text offers general readers an opportunity to better understand the complexities involved in adopting new genetic technologies, and to learn how to better identify and analyze ethical issues arising in several areas in which genetic advances are already affecting health care and agriculture. Using case studies and examples throughout, she explores a range of current topics, from stem cell research to genetically modified food, genetic mapping and cloning.
