Biotechnology and Law Seminar / Course: Ethical Issues (3)

This seminar considers the legal and ethical issues surrounding biotechnology research and development. The ownership and exploitation of biological resources will be among the core considerations with discussions on genetic data (genomics, bioinformatics, genetic data privacy) and genetic manipulation (gene-based research tools, pharmaceutical and agricultural products, and medical therapies). A technical proficiency in the biological sciences is neither required nor favored. Course performance will be measured primarily through the presentation of a paper, which can be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement.
