ELSI Genetics Resource Directory
The field of genetics has already generated important technologies and approaches for the benefit of public health. Genetic research and its applications need to be managed through frameworks that safeguard human dignity, safety, states’ interests, and health for all.
The ELSI Genetics Resource Directory (ELSI ReD) has been developed to provide an easy to use source to locate documents on genetic testing and screening, pharmacogenomics, genetic patents, genetic databanks and gene therapy. The directory includes legislations, guidelines, reports and statements.
