Congress members call to free H5N1 gene sequences

Filed under: avian influenza,Open data — admin @ 9:10 pm

I mentioned in a previous post that:

“Dennis Kucinich (Democrat, Ohio) and Wayne Gilchrest (Republican, Maryland) are circulating a letter in the House of Representatives that calls on Michael Levitt, the US health secretary, to require H5N1 sequences and other publicly funded research data “to be promptly deposited in a publicly accessible database, such as GenBank”.

The letter has now been sent, signed by 16 members of Congress: you can read it here.
