SfAM response on digital sequence information and the Nagoya Protocol

The Society for Applied Microbiology set out its position on digital sequence information (DSI) and the Nagoya Protocol to the UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in response to a request for information. Our response outlines the Society's support for the principles behind ensuring the fair and equitable use of genetic resources, but highlights some specific issues that must be considered if DSI is to be included within the scope of the Nagoya Protocol. Please see below for a copy of the Society's response.
