Information about a meeting of the representatives from Institutional Biosafety Committees (IBCs), held in Washington D.C. on November 24-25, 1981 is presented. It mentions the issues, discusses in the meeting including the exemption of E. Coli k-12 research from the federal guidelines, oversight methods for the recombinant DNresearch. The meeting also involved the workshops regarding the role of committee's public members, procedures and practices of the recombinant DNresearch.
