Brief summary article ScienceDaily: Who Should ‘Own’ Genetic Information? points to the British Medical Journal news release Should families own genetic information? Yes — Lucassen 335 (7609): 22 — BMJ.
That article in turn points to two journal articles that argue for different sides of that discussion – one in favour of families and the other in favour of the individual. You can find them at:
- Genetic information: a joint account? — Parker and Lucassen 329 (7458): 165 — BMJ – favours joint ownership.
- Should families own genetic information? No — Clarke 335 (7609): 23 — BMJ – favours private and personal to the individual concerned.
If I can find a decent polling plug-in or widget for the blog I might turn this into a poll.
