    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This SIENNA report 2.7 provides an assessment and integration of key results from SIENNA Reports 2.2, 2,3, 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6. A basic learning from these reports is that one has to acknowledge a need to balance different interests against each other, i.e. important human rights for the protection of basic freedoms against human rights related to the potential of benefiting from scientific advances.&amp;nbsp;The report emphasize that ethics&amp;nbsp;must&amp;nbsp;be an integral&amp;nbsp;reflective&amp;nbsp;part of the conduct of science as well as of clinical practice. A principled approach for such a reflective work is suggested to be part of a framework for ethical assessment both of genomic technologies at large and for research in genetics and genomics. The framework proposes a set of nine ethical principles and questions for ethical self- assessment in genetic and genomics research. For emerging technologies in human genetics and genomics where there is yet not sufficient backing in basic science or animal experiments but a possibility for clinical application within a context of compassionate treatment a special governance structure is suggested with an international organization setting up an institute of a&amp;nbsp;Patient Ombudsman.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;*This report is based partly on the SIENNA results reported in 2.2 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6, thus with due acknowledgement to contributors to these reports&lt;/p&gt;</description>
