Supporting Responsible Human Genomic Research Data Sharing & Security

ASHG supports policies that promote genetic and genomic data sharing to advance research and health care with strong protections in place for genetic information. The Society is concerned that a provision in the Senate-passed U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA, S.1260), that requires NIH to consider national security risks in the conduct of human genomic sequencing could add unnecessary burdens and hinder scientific progress.
