Evaluating Human Genetic Diversity

Committee on Human Genome Diversity, Virginia Rosa Dominguez

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook

Abstract

This report examines the scientific merits and value of research on human genetic or genomic variation and the organizational, policy, and ethical issues that such research poses in a more-general context than the proposed HGDP (Human Genome Diversity Project). Chapter 2 discusses the scientific basis and usefulness of a worldwide systematic survey of human genetic variation. Chapters 3 and 4 address technical and logistical problems posed by such a project with respect to sampling design, obtaining and maintaining sufficient genetic material, access to research materials and information, and data handling. Chapter 5 examines ethical, legal, and social issues. Chapter 6 treats the organization of the project and research priorities.
