How is digital data produced, stored and circulated in biotech? WP1 addresses this question by looking at infrastructures such as online repositories. The use of open platforms for data sharing is key for developments of emerging fields such as synthetic and systems biology. This WP is concerned with the moral and political economy of sharing in such emerging fields, and its implications in terms of RRI.
This WP combines approaches from STS and ethics, bringing these perspectives together through offline/online ethnographic fieldwork.
