520    "From DNA sequences stored on computer databases to 
       archived forensic samples and biomedical records, 
       bioinformation comes in many forms. Its unique provenance 
       ? the fact that it is "mined" from the very fabric of the 
       human body? makes it a mercurial resource; one that no one
       seemingly owns, but in which many have deeply vested 
       interests. Who has the right to exploit and benefit from 
       bioinformation? The individual or community from whom it 
       was derived? The scientists and technicians who make its 
       extraction both possible and meaningful or the commercial 
       and political interests which fund this work?  Who is 
       excluded or even at risk from its commercialisation? And 
       what threats and opportunities might the generation of ? 
       Big Bioinformational Data? raise? In this groundbreaking 
       book, authors Bronwyn Parry and Beth Greenhough explore 
       the complex economic, social and political questions 
       arising from the creation and use of bioinformation. 
       Drawing on a range of highly topical cases, including the 
       commercialization of human sequence data; the forensic use
       of retained bioinformation; biobanking and genealogical 
       research, they show how demand for this resource has grown
       significantly driving a burgeoning but often highly 
       controversial global economy in bioinformation. But, they 
       argue, change is afoot as new models emerge that challenge
       the ethos of privatisation by creating instead a dynamic 
       open source "bioinformational commons" available for all 
       future generations"--|cProvided by publisher
