Bio-objects are created when society recognizes a difficulty in classifying a biological entity in a particular category. This process of bio-objectification, in which bio-objects challenge the boundaries of categories and escape conventional categorization, can generate controversies that need to be addressed by society. The bio-objects presented in this book are examples of the difficulty of discerning living from non-living entities, human from animal, or organic from non-organic. Many of these bio-objects are used in biomedical research and applications, and include cell lines, embryos, bio banks, and gene technologies. Recognizing the existence of such bio-objects opens the question of how to govern and regulate them, and how to communicate and manage bio-object controversies.
 
This book is a collection of articles focused on the topic of bio-objects, which were published in Croatian Medical Journal from October 2011 to December 2014 by the members of COST Action IS1001 - Bio-objects and their boundaries: governing matters at the intersection of society, politics, and science.
