World-Renowned Futurist Reveals . . .

Do Genes Define Our Destiny?

[Rob Sawyer inside DNA]

The Human Genome Project is currently mapping out every bit of DNA that makes up a human being — soon we will have the complete blueprint for life. What will we do with that information? How will it affect health care? Does our upbringing really have any impact, or is everything we are determined by our genes?

Futurist and best-selling science-fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer will discuss the greatest moral quandaries facing us today, including:

  • The impact genetic information will have on the health-insurance industry.

  • Whether we should ban human cloning.

  • Designer babies.

  • The possibilities — and dangers — of genetic engineering.

CREDENTIALS: Sawyer is President of the Science Fiction Writers of America, and the only author in history to win the top SF awards in the U.S., Japan, Canada, France, and Spain. He's made over 75 national TV appearances and done countless radio shows. Sawyer's novel Frameshift, a finalist for the Hugo Award, is set against the backdrop of the Human Genome Project.
