EURAT - Ethical and Legal Aspects of Whole Genome Sequencing



EURAT is a project on normative issues of total genome sequencing that brings together scholars from Heidelberg University, the Heidelberg University Hospital, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law and the Research Center for Health Economics at the Hannover University. The project is sponsored by the Marsilius-Kolleg.
