Ethical issues in governing biobanks: global perspectives. Edited by: Elger, B; Biller-Andorno, N; Mauron, A; Capron, A M (2008). Aldershot, England: Ashgate.

Abstract

Population genomics research drawing on genetic databases has expanded rapidly, with some of this information being combined in 'biobanks'. Managing this information in an appropriate way is a highly complex ethical issue in the health policy arena. This book combines theoretical and empirical research to analyze the areas of conflict and consensus in the regulatory and ethical frameworks that have been developed to govern biobanks
