Genetic education in American schools: a view from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory



Genetic education in American schools: a view from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory



Sveriges Utsadesforenings Tidskrift 102(4): 162-167



Problems of genetic education are examined, in relation to the ethical questions raised by recent advances in genetics and molecular genetics, under the following headings: a lesson from the past (on abuses associated with eugenics); objectives and appropriateness of precollege genetics education; teacher training and evidence of success; and the DNA Learning Center (a unit of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory that is devoted to public genetics education).
