Description

"McGee takes us on journey behind the headlines and into the heart of this formidable cutting-edge science, revolutionizing the global debate about genetics with an energy and a plan that are certain to surprise experts and laypersons alike, McGee has written the first user's guide to genomics, outlining the ways in which ordinary people will soon be using genetic information in radically new ways at home, at work, and at leisure. Probing the far-ranging ethical and legal implications of genomic research, McGee tackles its most controversial and hotly debated aspects - from patenting your DNA to genetic engineering at the supermarket - and explodes unnecessary fears about this new knowledge."--Jacket.
