TOP REVIEWS FROM GENETICS AND SOCIETY: A COURSE FOR EDUCATORS
Very informative course and it breaks up classes nicely between scientific principles and ethics. It was a lot easier for me to keep up with than I thought it would be.
They have too much emphasis on the ethics of genetic research but on genetics itself, and they really should not put so much weight on peer-reviewed assignments as far as the grade go.
This was a fun, informative course that I enjoyed very much.
Great course with great texts and lectures. Congrats
