Scientific progress often sparks disputes about the meaning of a discovery, the research methods, the possible uses of new technology, and the effect this new technology will have on society. Stem Cell Research and Society explores many of these complex issues in cell research and technology, involving stem cell research, genetic engineering, genetic property rights, and more.

Chapters include: 

  • What are Stem Cells?
  • Why is the Use of Stem Cells Controversial?
  • Genetic Engineering in Plants
  • Genetic Engineering in Humans
  • Ethical Concerns Regarding Genetic Engineering
  • Gene and Tissue Property Rights
  • Forensic DNA Analysis
  • Genetic Testing in Medicine
