GE3LS is the study of the ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social aspects of genomics.
Génome Québec’s vision is to develop strategic and integrative GE3LS studies that focus on:
- public policy;
- knowledge transfer;
- risk management;
- socioeconomic benefits;
- provincial, national and international dimensions of these aspects.
Aside from large-scale and integrated research, Génome Québec has developed a number of initiatives to develop and promote GE3LS:
- Development of a GE3LS scientists Québec network
- Development of knowledge transfer events for the different players involved in the research, application or use of the spin-offs of genomics (forums, workshops, seminars, etc.)
