Abstract

In the 20 years following the launching of the Human Genome Project, socio-ethical and legal responses to the policy issues raised have varied across jurisdictions. There seems, however, to be a move away from the more static, classical responses that characterized the first decade to a more epigenetic and complex one. The latter policy approach better reflects the dynamic nature of the science itself.
