February Science Policy Journal Club

SPAR will be hosting a discussion on a policy memo on DNA regulation- The Frontiers of DNA Regulation: Developing a National Policy Framework Encouraging Transparency, Security, and Cost-efficiency of Genetic Technology and Data

Please read the 4-page policy memo beforehand and join us for a discussion of high-throughput sequencing technologies: how is DNA sequencing being used throughout society and what role should the government take in regulating its use? All backgrounds welcome! Our journal club meeting will include a brief presentation on DNA sequencing to get everyone up to speed on the science before we discuss the policy implications.

When: 2/4/21, 6pm
