Yes, very interesting that Intro Bio students are being asked to think ethically about future situations spinning out of current trends in biology! I remember the use of fingerprints in the past to link them to possible prediction of violent traits...and worry even now as young children are regularly fingerprinted in kindergarten! What if they could link a trait to independent thinking! Thank you for making this lecture free and open.
