Genomics, Populations, and Society, a new volume in the Genomic and Precision Medicine in Clinical Practice series, considers the vast and thorny web of ELSI topics in genomics, from bioethics to healthcare applications, healthcare economics, genomic data management, and population dynamics. Emphasis is placed on the impact of rapid genomic advances on ethical, sociocultural and lifestyle dimensions. Healthcare and health economics topics include genomics and digital health, genome editing, and genomics and infectious disease management. Legal issues related to data ownership, equity, access, probity, consent, and confidentiality are also discussed in-depth, along with sociocultural topics such as community engagement, consanguinity, and more.Here, a range of readers from researchers to clinicians, policy administrators, lawyers, economists and social scientists will discover carefully crafted, synthesized discussions on ELSI topics in genomics to power new scientific advances and genomic medicine implementation.
