From the morality of tinkering with human genes to the complexities of determining the order of authors on a paper, tough ethical questions await tomorrow's biomedical researchers. This new Web site from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) aims to spur future scientists to think about these issues. The content complements a free DVD users can order from HHMI that features conversations with more than 30 scientists, ethicists, patients, and other commentators. Covering topics such as genetic alteration and scientific integrity, the site provides discussion questions, case studies, and reading lists.
