Human Genome Research Institute
(HGP) is an
international research effort to characterize the genomes of human and
selected model organisms through complete mapping and sequencing of their
DNA, to develop technologies for genomic analysis, to examine the ethical,
legal, and social implications of human genetics research, and to train
scientists who will be able to utilize the tools and resources developed
through the HGP to pursue biological studies that will improve human health.

Alliance of Genetic Support Groups, Inc.
This is a nonprofit
tax exempt organization founded in 1986 as a national coalition of consumers,
professionals and genetic support groups to voice the common concerns of
children, adults and families living with, and at risk for, genetic conditions.
The Alliance builds partnerships among consumers and professionals and
the private and public sectors to promote optimum healthcare and enhanced
quality of life for individuals identified with genetic conditions.
Interest Group (GIG) is a national alliance of organisations with a membership
of over 120 charities which support children, families and individuals
affected by genetic disorders. Its primary goal is to promote awareness
and understanding of genetic disorders so that high quality services for
people affected by genetic conditions are developed and made available
to all who need them.

are accusing their government of taking huge payments from the company
licensed to create a genetic database of the country's entire population.
Although trading money for influence is nothing new, critics are reacting
harshly at least partly because the information involved is so sensitive.
Then there's the matter of the government accepting money from deCODE Genetic,
a biotech firm, even as it's trying to pass a genetics bill.
