From GM farm animals to embryonic stem cell research
Date:10/23/2007

Genomics and Society: Todays Answers, Tomorrows Questions taking place in London on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 October 2007 - brings together policymakers, researchers and natural scientists with what is becoming the worlds largest concentration of social scientific research in the field of genomics - the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Genomics Network (EGN).

DNA, genes and chromosomes are often described as the 'genetic information' that makes us what we are at birth. By considering together all this material from an organism, scientists find what they call its genome.

Genomics is the science of these genomes - their sequencing, mapping, analysis, and manipulation all central to developments from GM crops and Dolly the sheep to DNA fingerprinting or treating diabetes and liver disease in humans.

This weeks landmark gathering provides a showcase for important research findings from the first five years of work by the ESRC Genomics Network ranging across five UK universities and involving more than 100 researchers as well as examining big new questions emerging as it moves on to a second exciting phase.

Embryonic stem cell research, genetic databases and biobanks, and the potential for huge advances in medicine, physical health and psychiatry, feature among topics covered in lectures, debates, seminars and exhibitions. Jon Marks, distinguished author and Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, will deliver a keynote speech, whilst a debate, hosted with the Institute of Ideas, will ensue on the battle over ethics and regulation.

The event is organised by the Networks Genomics Policy and Research Forum, which connects social science research on genomics with public policy debates and decision-making.

Its director, Professor Steve Yearley, said: In the past week we have seen prominent genomics scientists, including Craig Venter and James Watson,
