Prenatal Genetic Diagnostics
The interdisciplinary study aims to evaluate the opportunities and risks of prenatal genetic diagnostics. An overview should indicate which tests are already available, which are being tried out, which areas of application are conceivable for the future and what social, ethical, legal and economic issues are associated with such tests. Examples of applications include genetic diagnostics in the blood of pregnant women and also – in connection with pre-implantation diagnostics (PID) – genetic diagnostics on the pre-implantation embryo or polar body diagnostics.
