MOL 320/WWS 320 Human Genetics, Reproduction, and Public Policy
(see WWS 320)
Critical concepts in genetics, evolution, behavior, and reproduction will be presented as a framework for understanding the science and potential human uses of cloning, genetic engineering and other advanced reproductive technologies. Public understanding and misunderstanding of the science and technology will be explored. Consideration will be given to the competing roles of religion, politics, and marketplace economics on the potential use of these technologies in different cultures and countries.
