Bussum, Netherlands, August 2, 2012: The journal 'Recent Patents in DNA and Gene Sequences' (http://www.benthamscience.com/dnag/) announces the publication of a special edition issue on Genetics and Athletics. The publication of this special issue is timed to coincide with the London 2012 Olympic Summer Games. The special issue focuses on the relationship between genes and athletic potential, a technology that currently has only a few patents and applications. With 12 confirmed articles from basic science researchers on five continents, practicing intellectual property attorneys, a veterinarian research group, legal academics and a philosophy professor, the special issue aims to broadly cover the Ethical, Legal and Social (ELSI) concerns associated with this technology, particularly in light of the Personal Genomics Industry.
Recent Patents on DNA & Gene Sequences is a part of the continuing popular series of 'Patent Review titles' published by Bentham Science publishers. The journal publishes review, research articles, drug clinical trial studies and guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in the field of DNA and Gene Sequence. The Journal is already indexed in Chemical Abstracts, Scopus, MEDLINE/PubMed, EMBASE, EMBiology, Genamics JournalSeek and many more. For more info visit http://www.benthamscience.com/dnag/
