Encyclopedia of Ethical, Legal, and Policy Issues in Biotechnology

In a comprehensive 2-volume, 1160-page reference work, the editorial team of Thomas Murray (The Hastings Center) and Maxwell Mehlman (Case-Western Reserve's Law-Medicine Center) bring together leading experts from a variety of fields to describe ethical, regulatory, and policy issues in biotechnology; analyze their implications; and present public policy options. Published late in 2000, the encyclopedia includes a chapter written by Daniel Drell of the DOE Human Genome Program's Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues program. This is the fourth and final entry in the Wiley Biotechnology Encyclopedias series. Visit the Web site for a detailed description, table of contents, and a sample article, "Human Enhancement Uses of Biotechnology," by Robert Wachbroit. [Orders: Web site, 800/225-5945, or]

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
