This session will cover topics related to governance and public policy in genomics research. It will address evolving trends in “open science”, including data sharing and privacy challenges. It will also focus on pressures to commercialize research juxtaposed with trends in providing more open access to scientific discoveries. These topics will be discussed in the context of relevant ethical standards, laws, regulations, and governance frameworks.
