The development of genetics and, in particular, the implementation of the " Geno man " project, with five per cent budgeted for ethical discussions, has created a particular bioethics problem. It examines not only the special trans-discipline format of energies and members of the public, but also the specificity of new scientific research that highlights a set of issues that require socio-humanitarian expertise.

The success achieved by the successful implementation of the Human Genome project has not only given rise to welcome expectations but also to a well-founded, high level of concern for both scientists and the general international community. What are the concerns expressed about the importance of genetic achievements in human genome research, what ethical considerations are expressed against artificial manipulation with the human genome? What is " human DNA games " , the way to " life ethic " or yet the " devil ' s subtle " and " slow-down " ? [1]
