UN WHO calls for global database of human gene editing research
In two reports Monday, WHO's expert group said all studies involving human genome editing should be made public, although the committee noted that wouldn't necessarily stop unprincipled scientists.

"In the field of stem cell research, unscrupulous entrepreneurs and clinics have deliberately misused clinical trial registries by registering procedures they plan to undertake as if they were properly sanctioned clinical trials," the group said, calling for WHO to ensure that all genetic editing research registered in their database are reviewed and approved by an ethics committee.

In contrast, the United States and Britain give foreign researchers access to genetic data, as part of open science policies.

Patently False: The Disinformation Over Coronavirus Patents

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States stepped in at the time and filed their own patent on the isolated SARS virus, its genes, its proteins, and the methods to detect it and the infection it was causing (US7220852B1 and US7776521B1). The reason? They wanted to prevent others from "monopolizing the field" and to allow researchers to develop diagnostics and therapeutics to help deal with the SARS outbreak.

Imagine if by playing a game on your phone, your phone detected the movement of blood in your brain, or the heat coming off your body, or changes in your facial expression, and used this "proof of work" to create new cryptocurrency units like Bitcoins.
