What is the status on Digital Sequence Information?

Posted by anon on 05/28/2019.

I have seen sequencing initiatives like the Earth BioGenome Project that say they will be Nagoya compliant, however it doesn’t look like the policy is set on how digital sequence information will be handled. Where can I go to learn more?

    Absolutely, digital sequence information is considered extremely important and the Conventions have stressed broader access is needed. During this interim period (2019-2020) there are many efforts happening to better understand the value and potential effects of changing the regulations of such information.
