1. Read the two publications posted below and review the goals of their associated organizations. Each argues competing views on reproductive cloning. Identify the reasons they cite that support and argue against reproductive cloning? Which of these reasons on both sides of the issue seem most reasonable to you? Why?  Are there currently restrictions in place for this technology? What are these restrictions?  Are they accepted globally or limited to individual countries? Where do you see this technology going during your lifetime? Why? http://www.hgalert.org/topics/cloning/cloning.PDF , a publication cited on a website in favor of restricting reproductive cloning at: http://www.hgalert.org/aboutUs/ http://www.humancloning.org/benefits.php , a publication cited on a website supporting reproductive cloning at: http://www.humancloning.org/benefits.php 2. What does the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), signed into law in 2008, regulate? (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/legislat.shtml) Does this law provide complete protection for our citizens? What valid concerns remain?      3. Researchers studied 650,000 common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the genomes of 938 unrelated individuals from 51 populations. http://www.i-sis.org.uk/humanGenomeDiversity.php Describe how the data was analyzed and what conclusions were drawn from the analysis. Discuss the controversy over the method of sample collection cited by the author? 4. Without relying on JUST theses websites, but using them as a starting point… http://www.nuffieldbioethics.org/bioinformation/bioinformation-ethical-values-and-human-rights and http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/lab/codis discuss the ethical, legal and social concerns of DNA databanking.
