E 150 The Human Genome Project

What is the Human Genome Project (the HGP) and why does it matter? This remarkable study sets out lucidly the nature of the project and the key ethical issues that arise from it.

It outlines a Christian understanding of what it is to be human, and from this identifies some clear criteria by which developments in genetic engineering, including uses of the HGP, might be evaluated.
