Mapping the Human Genome: Some Thoughts for Those Who Say "There Should Be a Law on It."
Bioethics. 1991 Jul; 5(3): 233-249.
...It appears from this discussion that the most effective method of regulating the problems that may arise from the human genome project is to concentrate, not on the research involved in the project, but rather on the uses that may be made of the information gained from it. Furthermore, there is already a good deal of legislation and administrative machinery that is directly or incidentally relevant to the matters in question. This should obviously be used as much as possible, rather than new legislation, to reduce bureaucracy, overlapping provisions and costs.
