    Understanding Risk: Psychosis and Genomics Research in Singapore.Ayesha Ahmad, Tamara Lysaght, Liu Jianjun, Mythily Subramaniam, Tan Say Beng & Benjamin Capps - 2012 - Genomics, Society and Policy 8 (2).
    This is an exploratory paper of the ethical implications for genomic research and mental illness with specific reference to Singapore. Singapore has a unique context due to its social and political systems, and although it is a relatively small country, its population is religiously and culturally diverse. The issues that we identify here, therefore, will offer new perspectives and will also shed light on the existing literature on psychiatric genomics in society. We contextualise issues such as risk and stigma in (...)

    Race, Genetic Determinism and the Media: An Exploratory Study of Media Coverage of Genetics and Indigenous Australians.Emma Kowal & Gerald Frederic - 2012 - Genomics, Society and Policy 8 (2):1-14.
    Social scientists and Indigenous people have voiced concerns that media messages about genetics and race may increase the public's belief in genetic determinism and even increase levels of racism. The degree of genetic determinism in media messages has been examined as a determining factor. This study is the first to consider the implications of this area of scholarship for the indigenous minority in Australia. A search of the last two decades of major Australian newspapers was undertaken for articles that discussed (...)

    Micro Michael Crichton. [REVIEW]Hub Zwart - 2012 - Genomics, Society and Policy 8 (2):1-3.
    Although he died in 2008, prolific science novelist Michael Crichton – acting as a ‘ghost-writer’, so to speak – continues to add new titles to his oeuvre. Notwithstanding the death of the author, his novel-producing machinery refuses to come to a full stop, - although in this case Richard Preston (a science novelist in his own right, author of, among others, The Hot Zone, on viral infections) was recruited to finish the book. MICRO – a title that almost reads like (...)

    Genetics, Genetic Testing and Sports: Aspects From Sports Cardiology.Herbert Löllgen & Ruth Löllgen - 2012 - Genomics, Society and Policy 8 (1):1-16.
    There is a major trade-off between improvements in longevity, general health, fitness and quality of life due to regular intense physical activity on the one hand and possible cardiac risks on the other hand, whether for participants in leisure time sports activities or for highly trained athletes. Cardiac complications and sudden death in sports, even though rare, but dramatic, events, are mainly observed in those suffering from inherited, often latent diseases with a strong genetic background, unknown to the subjects. Sedentary (...)

    Genetic Tests in Sports Medicine- Many Studies, Little Impact.Sabine Rudnik-Schöneborn - 2012 - Genomics, Society and Policy 8 (1):1-7.
    Genetic research in sports has a history of more than 40 years of endeavouring to find out which genetic factors can predict the performance of an athlete. With increasing knowledge of the human genome and availability of genetic testing the market of direct-to-consumer genetic tests has exploded in recent years. There are tests for genetic variants for medical and general health issues, but there are also 'lifestyle' tests, including tests for indicators for sport performance. The human gene map for fitness (...)
