Genomes: A Platform for Signal Transduction Research?

Ready for the Public?

8 May 2001

Ananth Narayanan

I am responding to Venky Ramakrishnas views on the topic mentioned. While I fully endorse his concerns about a single entity monopolizing the information gleaned out of the HG project, it becomes equally relevant to ask whether putting the same in the public domain is really going to work as it is projected. The information is liable to misuse, as would any other information in the public domain.

There is no gainsaying that Genomics research is going to have myriad implications in other branches of sciences, like life sciences. There must be a proper and informed debate at all levels before any meaningful conclusion is made about what is relevant for putting in public domain and what should not be made public.
