This class will focus on the science underlying current advances in biotechnology, and then examine the impacts of these technologies on various aspects of society such as economics, politics, and ethics. The rationale behind this course is that you cannot accurately evaluate the potential benefits or costs of a new technology unless you have a thorough understanding of the underlying science.
