This chapter examines the regulation of access to genetic information. It first discusses third parties’ interests in genetic test results, and the extent to which genetic privacy is protected by the law. It considers whether genetic discrimination should be treated in the same way as other types of discrimination and discusses developments in the field of genetics, including direct-to-consumer genetic testing and pharmacogenetics.
