Digitalization: The Law of the Future or the Future of the Law?
An important objective the solution of which is provided within various areas of state policy is to energize the improvement of genetic technologies and their practice application in Russia. Such technologies cover the social sphere by using the latest achievements of genetic science in medicine and pharmaceutics, economic development in agriculture and industry, as well as national biosafety in the Russian Federation. However, legal support for the development of genetic technologies requires conceptual refinement: biologists, geneticists, doctors and other practitioners in genomic research and the application of genetic technologies face a raft of legal problems, which cannot always be resolved within the scope of current legislation. What new regulatory solutions can be developed in this regard?
