The news in bioethics and biotechnology section of the Eubios Ethics
Institute www site has been increased to include 30 topics from 1991 to

Bioethics.  Three new books are expected to be on-line within a month, and
some Japanese books are all on-line.

Visitors welcome!


Call for papers on intelligence and genetics
The AJMG will publish papers in response to the Bell Curve and the US
NIH-DOE ELSI Working Group critique of this book, in a coming issue.  We
invite well-argued, referenced and thoughtful submissions on this theme.
The topics could include  the history of the genetics of intelligence,
current thinking about "intelligence" testing (including social biases),
the genetics of intelligence, the relevance of the biology of intelligence
to education and social policy, racial attitudes in different cultures
about intelligence, how and if genetics should be involved in social policy
questions, for example.  Please submit papers (of up to 4000 words) in AJMG
paper style by the 15 March to:

Subj:   RE: ETHI: Johns Hopkins and Oncormed


From: "Stephen J. Meltzer" <smeltzer@UMABNET.AB.UMD.EDU>

Yes, these are very good points.  Many people agree with you completely.
However, the importance of the independent verifying institution should be
de-emphasized; of greater importance is the original relationship between
Oncormed and Hopkins/Sidransky: this relationship creates overriding
pressures to develop a marketable commercial product, above all other
motivating criteria.
