Genetic Ethics Debate

Students select topics relating to bioethical questions which they research and debate. With the revolution in the areas of molecular biology, including gene therapy and the work of The Human Genome Project, there arise many questions of interest and concern to society. Research in the areas of gene manipulation and the ethical, legal, and social implications, that this research will have on society are being presented in the media and literature. To best address these issues, this activity uses the format of group research on the following selected list of topics. This activity provides students with a chance to investigate topics of interest and to provide a comprehensive overview of the topics, in a debate format for their peers.
