Synthetic biology and the responsible conduct of research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we suggest that synthetic biology poses no special issues for the Responsible Conduct for Research or for Institutional Biosafety Committees (IBCs). Moreover, researchers working in the area, as well as regulatory agencies, have been proactive in ensuring that research into synthetic biologicals are appropriately governed and potential risks mitigated. Regulatory frameworks for the responsible conduct for research, such as The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, provide such a governance framework. Institutional Biosafety Committees also provide an appropriate mechanism for mitigating risk.
