Geneticists face a range of challenges and questions in the conduct of their research or clinical practice. Genetic information is also being used in the broader society for a variety of purposes, raising ethical questions. ASHG issues guidance regarding the Society’s perspectives on issues emerging from working with genomic and genetic information and technology in different phases and settings. Guidances are developed either by ASHG alone or in partnership with other organizations, and are intended to inform the genetics community, healthcare providers, and other interested parties.
