Recent advances in disciplines akin to biotechnology, nanotechnology, and neuropharmacology entail a "dual-use problem" simply because they promise advantages for human well-being and welfare but pose the danger of misuse for adverse reasons. The rising box of man-made genomics, for instance, can produce customized DNA molecules for life-saving medications but in addition makes attainable the construction of lethal viral brokers for organic struggle or terrorism. The problem for policymakers is to avoid the misuse of those new applied sciences with no forgoing their benefits. Innovation, twin Use, and Security deals a scientific process for coping with the dual-use obstacle. The e-book provides a "decision framework" for assessing the protection dangers of rising applied sciences and fashioning governance thoughts to control these dangers. This framework is utilized to 14 modern case reviews, together with artificial genomics, DNA shuffling and directed evolution, combinatorial chemistry, protein engineering, immunological modulation, and aerosol vaccines. The ebook additionally attracts priceless classes from old instances: the improvement of the V-series nerve brokers in Britain and the use and misuse of LSD by way of the U.S. military and the CIA. Innovation, twin Use, and Security deals a accomplished, multifaceted creation to the demanding situations of governing dual-use applied sciences in an period of fast innovation. The booklet should be of curiosity to govt officers and different practitioners in addition to to scholars and students in defense reviews, technological know-how and know-how stories, biology, and chemistry.
