Open Letter

A rotating image of a DNA helix

We, the undersigned organizations and individuals, diverse representatives of the global research community, recognize that this is a critical moment for the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Outcomes of the CBD Conference of the Parties in 2022 (COP 15) will shape the use of and access to Digital Sequence Information (DSI) for decades to come.

Open access to DSI and related data are important elements in any policy solution, as DSI has enabled ground-breaking advances in many fields of research and underpins the generation of knowledge and common goods that benefit us all.

At the same time, we recognize the sovereign right of nations over their natural resources, including their genetic resources, and the role and interests of indigenous peoples and local communities. Sensible solutions must be found that ensure fair and equitable benefit sharing from DSI.

We acknowledge the challenge that policymakers face in finding suitable compromises on this important issue. We believe that researchers who work with DSI can make an important contribution to the effort by countries to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of different policy options, and thereby aid the development of a fair and equitable system that will deliver benefit-sharing while protecting open access, supporting research and innovation, and promoting biodiversity conservation.

We, therefore, call on Parties to the CBD to:

  • Ensure that researchers are given a voice in the process of developing national positions, in the weighing of DSI options, and in formal and informal CBD processes.
  • Listen to calls from the scientific community for multilateral benefit-sharing approaches that incentivize the generation and contribution of DSI to the global system.
  • Ensure that the outcomes of these negotiations reflect the reality of the scientific process and account for the thousands of interlinked databases that currently serve billions of sequences to millions of users around the world.
  • Support open access to DSI. Open access drives research and innovation, improves scientific reproducibility, enables rapid responses to public health crises, facilitates capacity building and international collaborations, and promotes training and education.
  • Learn from the experience of the Nagoya Protocol and other treaties, and avoid new systems for DSI that would increase regulatory complexity and costs of research, disproportionately affecting developing countries where resources are particularly scarce.

A balanced approach must be found that protects openness and ensures benefit sharing if we wish to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and implement the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Without an open and equitable solution to DSI, the scientific community will be hindered in its ability to conduct research and develop solutions for current environmental and health crises.

Background

Benefit sharing solutions for Digital Sequence Information (DSI) are being discussed and negotiated in a series of meetings taking place throughout 2022, as Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity work to reach agreement on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, a new action plan that aims to transform society’s relationship with biodiversity.

The scientific community is the primary generator and user of DSI. The outcome of these negotiations will therefore shape our ability to use DSI and generate research that helps move forward sustainable development, protect biodiversity and address global health crises. Given the importance of DSI to our work, it is essential that our perspectives, expertise and experience be included in considerations of different approaches to benefit sharing for DSI.

DSI is used by researchers in a wide of contexts including for studying and monitoring biodiversity, understanding ecosystem impacts from climate change, improving crops, developing new medicines, and tracking the spread and evolution of new infectious diseases. Access to DSI is therefore crucial to research supporting many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

A wide range of organizations and experts have called for DSI policy solutions that provide equitable benefit-sharing through multilateral mechanisms that protect open access DSI.

Why multilateral?

“Multilateral” refers to policy solutions where access and benefit sharing for DSI would be facilitated by a set of common rules agreed to by all CBD Parties. Multilateral mechanisms are favored by many scientific organizations and other stakeholders, because DSI is already shared around the world through a complex network of databases and scientific collaborations. Common rules are therefore needed so that scientists and databases around the world can continue to generate and share knowledge effectively.

Members of the DSI Scientific Network recently published a paper outlining a multilateral policy mechanism for DSI that would ensure a “win-win” solution that balances open access with benefit sharing. This work expands on a set of key principles previously presented by the Network in a policy position submitted to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in response to a call for input from governments and other organizations (CBD/WG2020/3/4). Other research and development organizations have made similar submissions supporting multilateral approaches, including the Wellcome-Sanger Institute, Argentine researchers, several European research organizations, CGIAR and others.

Why open?

The sequencing community’s tradition of open sharing has immeasurable benefits for research, biodiversity conservation and the bioeconomy, and is a central part of the growing open science movement. The international trend toward open science, and its many benefits, are clearly recognized in the recently adopted UNESCO Open Science Recommendation.

DSI are shared openly through a series of linked databases comprising the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC). These databases currently contain more than 228 million annotated sequences, and serve many millions of unique users each year. A complex ecosystem of other databases and analysis tools depend on these core resources, and are used by scientists throughout modern biology, biodiversity and medical research. DSI in public databases are used by researchers in all countries.
