The proposed study will analyze how the development of genetic diagnostic technology in a clinical genetics practice and in a population genetics practice goes together with the emergence of specific normative and social dilemmas and with the developing of strategies to deal with them. The study aims to provide insight in mechanisms by which genetic research, health care and society are related now and in how they might be attuned more adequately.
