  • Abstract:
    This volume addresses the current development in human genetic research and biomedicine. The new possibilities of insight and interference after the decoding of the human genome confront scientists and society with ethical, legal and socio-cultural questions in the field of genetic research involving humans.

    The book provides an overview on the current stage of research and is at the same time a helpful introduction to the present discussion. Additionally, selected areas are covered in more detail: genetic diagnostics, functional research with a therapeutical goal, pharmacogenetics and the individualized medicine of the future.
