Permanent Senate Commission on Genetic Research

The Senate Commission on Genetic Research was formed in 1994 to provide appraisal and foresight in the field of genetics and genomics so as to enable the DFG to make timely and well-informed contributions to public debate. One of the commission's main tasks is to publicise its findings on a regular basis.

Priority is given to issues of research policy, to areas in which information deficits can be identified in public debate, and to developments in genetic research that raise scientific, ethical, legal and social questions.
