This is the first comparative study of predictive and genetic testing in Asia in the English language. It explores genetic and predictive testing in relation to political and social institutions such as education, healthcare, research regulation and genetic governance. It is a unique study of genomic policy-making, grounded in empirical fieldwork in China, Japan, India and Sri Lanka. The volume presents original theoretical analyses of the cultural and political dimensions of predictive and genetic testing by analysing the social, cultural, political and economic environment of choices that people have before and after they undergo a genetic or predictive test. With bibliography and index.
