State Department Teleconference on Digital Sequence Information of Genetic Resources
The U.S. Department of State has announced a public teleconference on the “Use of Digital Sequence Information of Genetic Resources,” on May 14, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Eastern time. This meeting replaces the March 12 in-person meeting. International discussions around the use of digital sequence information (DSI) are currently being conducted in multiple international forums - the Nagoya Protocol, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the World Health Organization, the International Treaty for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction negotiations - that have implications for both public and private scientific research. During the public meeting, officials from the State Department will provide a brief overview of the ongoing discussions regarding DSI on genetic resources in the context of the CBD and the Nagoya Protocol and will listen to your comments, concerns, and questions about this issue. The goal is an informal discussion that will help the U.S. Government prepare for U.S. participation in international meetings. You may register to attend the teleconference by submitting your full name and organization to Patrick Reilly at ReillyPK2@state.gov and copying RSVP-ECW@state.gov at least three days prior to the meeting. If you are unable to join, you can submit comments electronically at www.regulations.gov, using the docket number [DOS-2020-2017]. For more information, visit: https://www.govinfo...
