In the early stages of genetic modification, we need ethical guidelines more than ever, guidelines that could forebode or decree what is to come. That's where The Matrix comes in. The Inheritable Modification Matrix is the culmination of Marilyn Coors' examination of ethics, religion, and science in the context of human genetic modification. The Matrix identifies virtues, values, and principles that differentiate the beneficial uses of inheritable genetic modification from those that threaten the dignity of human life.
Marilyn E. Coors is assistant professor in the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center's Program in Health Care Ethics, Humanities, and Law.
