Genetic science is about to radically alter our lives. Sooner
than you can imagine, human beings will be capable of diagnosing
their own illnesses, designating the sex of their children, even
designing the food they eat -- all as easily as using a cell phone.
Now is the time for every one of us to take control of our DNA, and
one man is uniquely qualified to show us how: Glenn McGee,
bioethicist at the University of Pennsylvania, pioneer in the study
of "home genetics," and the acknowledged wunderkind of the exciting
world found at the nexus of life science and computer
One of the most respected authorities in the field of genomics
-- the study of the genetic "software" inside plants, animals, and
us -- McGee takes us on an eye-opening journey behind the headlines
and into the heart of this formidable cutting-edge science. 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 wondrous new
We live in a brave new world. Beyond Genetics provides us with
the knowledge we need to take the right steps forward into tomorrow
... and beyond.
