Editorial Reviews

Review

"...this book is STS at its best....For those skeptical of STS's ability to explore broader ethical and political questions, this book might very well convince them that STS has much to contribue not despite its focus on laboratory work but precisely because of it." - CJS Online, Jose Lopez, University of Ottawa

Book Description

The Human Genome Diversity Project was an important and controversial programme of research arising from the debates surrounding the mapping of the human genome. This book is based on a detailed ethnographic study of two laboratories involved in the project and explores issues around standardisation, naturalisation and diversity generated during the course of the work of scientists and technicians. As well as offering unique insights into day-to-day scientific practice, it brings a wide range of perspectives to bear on our understanding of the contemporary life sciences and their social implications.
