Evans' recent articles deal with genetics-related intentional torts, ownership and pricing of genetic data, First Amendment issues in communication of genetic data, and the looming restructuring of healthcare in response to genetic technologies."The recent Supreme Court decision in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad forces lawyers to think about the human genome in new ways," said Evans, George Butler Research Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Biotechnology & Law. "If it isn't patentable subject matter, what is it? Is it a natural resource? January changes to federal privacy regulations are pricing genetic data in ways that look a lot like traditional electricity and natural gas rate structures. So it's a great time for lawyers from all fields to take a closer look at genetics: even if you think it's not in your field, it may actually be in your field!"
