„Gene-Doping – Doping of the Future?“ is the title of a textbook containing educational material for both, teacher and teenage pupils. The book – also available in a digital edition – was released in 2013 within the context of the German project „Aktionsprogramm Gentechnologie im Leistungssport“ (= Action Program Gene Technology in Competitive Sports).

In beginning 2016 the textbook will be internationally published and promoted as a best practice model in schools, universities and other educational institutions. The textbook itself pioneers an increasingly important topic in a threefold approach, including ethical, juridical and scientific perspec- tive. It’s applicability is hence versatile, for example in the fields of ethics, religious education, philosophy, biology, chemistry or physical education.

Since the textbook initially goes back to a project funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research, it has not only been evaluated but also put into practice.
The experience made with 9th to 11th-class in German secondary schools revealed that the text-books material could easily be implemented into the respective curricula.
