history and the real potential for recurrence,

and detailed understanding of the relevant science and ethical, legal and social factors will
promote the formulation and implementation of effective policies. For instance, in reproductive genetic testing, it is crucial to include
perspectives from the disability community.
Research should explore how different individuals, cultures and religious traditions view
the ethical boundaries for the uses of genomics
— for instance, which sets of values determine
attitudes towards the appropriateness of
applying genomics to such areas as reproductive genetic testing, ‘genetic enhancement’ and
germline gene transfer. it is particularly important to gather sufficient scientifically valid information about
genetic and environmental factors to provide a sound understanding of the contributions and interactions between genes and
environment in these complex phenotypes.
It is also important that there be robust
research to investigate the implications, for
both individuals and society, of uncovering
any genomic contribu...
