Great post Sarah, definitely touches on a lot of the research that we’re doing for the ASIC course right now. The ASIC course will now touch on the field of personal genomics, a technology that is certainly pushing a lot of the traditional boundaries of ethics and privacy.

Your discussion of multiple truths is especially interesting- I’m always a happy arts student when I see science kids asking these questions! Coincidentally, a great new first year science course will be running (care of Terry’s own Joanne Fox and quite a few of her great colleagues) that asks these exact questions.
