Ethics of Bioinformatics Training Toolkit

20 April

The Víctor Grífols Foundation UVIC-UCC Chair of Bioethics and Bioinformatics Barcelona (BIB) published "Toolkit para formación en ética de la bioinformática" (Ethics of Bioinformatics Training Toolkit) by David Casacuberta, lecturer and researcher at UAB.

 

Although more attention is now paid to bioethical issues in bioinformatics studies, the curriculum does not yet include any reflection on or analysis of the ethical problems faced by this discipline. This book is designed as a resource to support teachers, to introduce reflection on ethical issues when training bioinformatics professionals.

 

The project is the result of the work of the Ethics and Data Security Group, a multidisciplinary group, established with the aim of sharing knowledge and offering practical tools for bioinformatics professionals who handle sensitive information.

On 20 April, the book's author, David Casacuberta, presented the project via Zoom at a virtual event that also included contributions from Jordi Quintana (Coordinator of the Working Groups of Bioinformatics Barcelona) and Núria Terribas (director of the Víctor Grífols Foundation UVIC-UCC Chair of Bioethics).
