Genetic Engineering

1. Do you think that certain advances in science and technology today are not worth the time and effort put into them? Are there better uses for our limited resources? Do you think the cartoon fairly characterizes the behavior of biotech researchers, or is it a gross caricature?
2. The ethical and moral responsibility of doctors and scientists has never been greater than it is today. Do you think doctors and scientists need to pay more attention than they currently do to the implications of their research?
3. It seems inconceivable that a human/trout/turnip hybrid could offer any benefits. Can you, however, think of any surprisingly beneficial developments in medical research?
4. What does this cartoon suggest about the biotech industry?
5. The title of the cartoon is “The March of Progress”? What is this cartoon’s attitude toward progress?
