Genetic Privacy: Should we be concerned?

Should all our genetic information be made public in order to eradicate genetic diseases from this world? Who owns your genetic data once it becomes publicly accessible? What is your responsibility to family members when you know more about genetic diseases than they do? Who decides what kind of genetic information is relevant to a person? And what does genetic privacy mean to you?

In this course we will critically reflect upon the issue of genetic privacy. We will dive into the ethical questions that come up with the disclosure of genetic data in biobanks and through genetic tests. This course encourages the participants to think about the cultural, philosophical and political tensions present in the debate around genetic privacy.
