Draft Exploratory Fact-Finding Scoping Study on “Digital Sequence Information” on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture
This exploratory fact-finding scoping study examines how digital sequence information (DSI) on genetic resources for food and agriculture is currently being used, how it might be used in the future and what the implications of its use are and might be in the future for the food and agriculture sector. All uses of DSI on genetic resources for food and agriculture (GRFA) that do or could affect GRFA or the value of GRFA were considered within scope of the study. This included use as food or in agriculture, but also using DSI to discover or add value to materials derived from GRFA (e.g. amyloid forming proteins, enzymes) or to add value to GRFA (e.g. identification of new traits, preservation of endangered populations, diagnosis of pathogens, food preservation).
