|MadSci Network: Genetics|
Hi Jason, So first of all, I'm not going to find the exact references for your paper. That's your job. But I do know of a bunch of good websites to get you started. And here they are: http://www.nih.gov/sigs/bioethics/ This is the part of the website for the National Institutes of Health. They are the major government funded agency for biology research, and also act as a liason to congress. (check out their biotechnology section) http://www.ostp.gov/NSTC/html/nstc_pubs.html The Whitehouse Office of Science and Technology Policy is the executive branch's science policy arm. This website talks the publications and congressional testimony dealing with science. http://www.house.gov/science/welcome.htm The House and Senate each have science committees. Another good source of info. http://www.aaas.org/spp/ The American Association for the Advancement of Science is a huge organization of scientists from all disciplines, and they also help in making US science policy Some things you might want to consider: there was a lot in the news in Aug 99 about cloning, since this was when human stem cells were first isolated. So if you find information from that time period, it's probably about the correct stuff. Good luck with your paper! Please let me know if you need more information. -Sarah
