This book introduces readers to important ethical issues that arise in the realm of genetic engineering. It provides the basic science and ethical analysis necessary to assess central issues confronting our society in this emerging area of research. At the end, readers will be able to formulate their own positions on these crucial issues. Chapter topics include professional and practical principles of conduct, the biological basics, from cell to test tube, the biology of genetic therapy, the limits of science, somatic gene therapy, enhancement, cloning, and germ line therapy. For individuals interested in the formal study of biomedical ethics.

  • An introduction to relevant ethical concepts
  • A miniature textbook in microbiology
  • An exposition on the limits of science
  • An integrated discussion of ethics and biology on the central issues of the currant research
