Introducing the BioPolicy Wiki 

Jesse Reynolds at the Center for Genetics and Society has just alerted me to their latest project, the BioPolicyWiki. A brief description:

BioPolicyWiki

BioPolicyWiki compiles country-level policies governing human reproductive and genetic technologies and  practices. Its “wiki” format means that anyone can edit it. With users’ contributions, the initial collection of legal and policy information will grow in quantity and quality.

BioPolicyWiki includes both country-level policies and binding international agreements governing reproductive and genetic technologies and practices. The policies in each country are placed into categories and elaborated upon in a narrative. The practices currently include:

  • Eggs for assisted reproduction
  • Eggs for research
  • Inheritable genetic modification
  • Preimplantation genetic diagnosis
  • Reproductive cloning
  • Reseach cloning
  • Sex selection
  • Surrogacy

It’s well worth a look. Check it out!
