Biotechnological responses to perceived hazards stir deep emotions approximately shared destiny, and so they crystallize new moral configurations, usually re-inscribing conventional ideals approximately ethnicity, state, and race. As the various essays during this assortment illustrate, country involvement in biotech projects is riding the emergence of “biosovereignty,” an expanding strain for country regulate over organic assets, advertisement future health items, company habit, and genetic based-identities. Asian Biotech deals much-needed research of the interaction between biotechnologies, financial progress, biosecurity, and moral practices in Asia.
