From the Back Cover
Praise for the First Edition:
“A lucid and compelling deconstruction of current practice in the patenting of human genes, exposing inherent contradictions in the process and offering practical ways to resolve them.”
John Sulston, the University of Manchester, Nobel Prize Laureate
“Who owns you is lucidly written and reads as a 101 gene patenting. It is a book suitable for all who wish to understand gene patenting, and obtain a fresh perspective on associated ethical and legal matters”.
“We live in a century when quandaries that seemed more appropriate for science fiction will become real… David Koepsell here raises a set of fascinating questions that all of us, and policy makers in particular, should ponder as science is slowly redefining what it means to human.”
Lawrence Krauss, Arizona State University
“Koepsell’s timely book is highly recommended for all reading levels.”
CHOICE, December 2009
