New genetic technologies and their applications in biomedicine and clinical settings have important implications for social identities in contemporary societies. This volume addresses transformations in collective and personal identity from a variety of national, disciplinary and empirical standpoints, and analyses the social implications of advances in genetic technologies for identity formation in a period of rapid scientific and social change.
