The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, collects, preserves, and makes available to the public information about health, medicine, and the biomedical sciences. To continue fulfilling this mission, NLM is collecting and archiving related Web content, which also serves to document the histories of health and medicine.
A selective collection of websites documenting topics in bioethics, including a focus on ethical, legal, and social implication of gene-editing. Collecting began in 2016 following the launch of the Human Gene-Editing Initiative by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine to facilitate decision making for the responsible use of human gene-editing research. Archived websites are primarily in English. NLM will continue to develop, review, describe, and add content to the collection.
