With rich case study material drawn from the UK, USA and Australia, The Genome Incorporated explores the new forms of technological control, new kinds of subjectivity and new sites of resistance and reconfiguration which accompany the opportunities that genomics promises for science and society. Examining the incorporation and resistances to genomics in every day life, this volume will appeal to readers across a range of social sciences.
