This book provides a thorough, well-balanced analysis of common research practices with banked tissues, DNA, and genetic data. Describing many examples of beneficial tissue research, the authors focus on problematic research practices, controversial cases, and federal and institutional policies that limit the informed choices of patients and research participants. They offer a series of recommendations to help overcome these problems.
