Genome BC Launches New Online Newsletter for Social Scientists and Humanists

Some often mused that while hyper-specialization leads to some very interesting discoveries, the divorcing of ethics, morality, or culture from the study of 'real science' is ultimately not for the greater good. William Leiss' work comes to mind.

All the more reason it's nice to see initiatives like this come to fruition.

New from Genome BC:
This is a resource for social science and humanities researchers interested in the societal issues associated with genomics science and technology, and features articles on BC researchers and projects of interest as well as providing details of funding ...opportunities, upcoming conferences and events, both nationally and internationally, and much more.
Each issue will relate to a different theme.

This (first!) issue is on the environment. Access the pdf here>>
