Submission + - Avian Flu (H5N1): Debate between Researchers and Biosecurity Advisory Board (sciencemag.org)

rackeer writes: "Exchanging research results is at the heart of the scientific method. However, there are concerns about whether investigations of pandemics, which possibly constitute a threat to the whole population of earth, should be shared. The debate about research on the avian flu was discussed on slashdot before. Now the main parties have their own 2 cents to say. On-line on the science magazine are commentaries both by by authors of the paper in question, who went ahead with the publication, and by the national advisory board for biosecurity, who advised against publishing."
