Personal Genetics Education Project

What’s your favorite genetics, bioethics, science and society book?

We asked the GETed 2013 attendees to tell us about their favorite books about genetics, bioethics, and science and society. pgEd’s eyesight is such that this picture (see below) doesn’t quite do the trick, so the transcribed list is here. GETed speaker Jay Clayton also told us about the Literature, Film and Genetics project that compiled and reviewed books and movies related to genetics as part of a National Human Genome Research Institute-supported effort to create teaching resources at the high school and college level. Happy summer and happy reading!

Have a suggestion? This list is hardly complete. Do you have a suggestion for a book that we should include? We will update this list periodically. Thank you for sharing!
