    Technical developments in the last ten years have made possible mapping and sequencing of the entire human genome, along with the possibility of treating genetic disorders by manipulating DNA.

    A variety of issues regarding potential uses and abuses of these technologies have become apparent.

    They relate to both genetic screening and gene therapy.

    Problems facing individuals and their families mostly revolve around rights of self-determination and of confidentiality.

    Health care professionals will need to design optimal systems to provide genetic counseling and to protect confidentiality of DNA data bases.
