Abstract

This article challenges the work of several law scholars with arguments based in bioethics, research pragmatism, and genetic science. The article concludes that proposals to stretch U.S. antidiscrimination jurisprudence to regulate away race and ethnicity in genetics research are misguided at best.

Keywords: genetics, race, ethnicity, medical, biotechnology, bioethics
