ABC'S of GE³LS Research


gel

GE3LS is the study of the ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social aspects of genomics.

Génome Québec’s vision is to develop strategic and integrative GE3LS studies that focus on:

  • public policy;
  • knowledge transfer;
  • risk management;
  • socioeconomic benefits;
  • provincial, national and international dimensions of these aspects.

 

At Génome Québec, there are large-scale GE3LS projects as well as integrated GE3LS research within scientific projects.

To learn how to prepare your integrated GE3LS research, consult this reference document.

Aside from large-scale and integrated research, Génome Québec has developed a number of initiatives to develop and promote GE3LS:

  • Development of a GE3LS scientists Québec network
  • Development of knowledge transfer events for the different players involved in the research, application or use of the spin-offs of genomics (forums, workshops, seminars, etc.)
