Attitudes towards the Human Genome Project.
Shahroudi, Julie; Shaw, Geraldine
Attitudes concerning the Human Genome Project were reported by faculty (N=40) and students (N=66) from a liberal arts college. Positive attitudes toward the project involved privacy, insurance and health, economic purposes, reproductive purposes, genetic counseling, religion and overall opinions. Negative attitudes were expressed regarding discrimination and judicial purposes. Faculty ranked such factors as genetic disease within a family, reproductive purposes, interest in arts, interest in humanities, genetic-related counseling, and privacy for genetic information higher than the students did. Differences between male and female were shown with regard to number of children, genetic disease in the family, and the use of genetic knowledge for reproductive purposes. (Contains 19 references.)
