DNA and Dollars

DNA and Dollars takes the viewer behind the scenes in clinics and laboratories to meet some of the major players in Canadian genetic research and into the homes of patients who have donated their DNA in the hope of finding treatments or cures for diseases. In the midst of this hope, nagging questions remain as to the ownership and patenting of human genetic materials. The biotech industry rightly claims that it takes a decade or more and millions of dollars to get a discovery from the lab bench to the drugstore shelf. But the public concerns about the manipulation and commercialization of human genes, cloning, genetic privacy seem to be lost as science marches onwards. (2002 ; 48 min.)
