I never seem to stop plugging Radio National podcasts, but here‘s one that shouldn’t be missed, on Damien Carrick‘s Law Report, about genetic profiling. The program looks at the likely prospect that within the next ten years it will be possible to purchase a full genetic profile relatively cheaply (i.e., for around $1000).
Carrick asks a range of legal, genetics, and bioethics experts how we should be thinking about regulating genetic profiling, and the scope for increased discrimination that it opens, in both the commercial and familial spheres.
If you have an mp3 player, give it a listen.
