human genome, biological material, information about the genome, state registration of the genome


This article highlights in detail the potential problems and threats arising from the use of genomic information by unauthorized persons, ensuring the participation of a specialist in obtaining biological material from the crime scene, determining the categories of persons subject to mandatory genomic registration according to the Law "On State Genomic Registration”, making mistakes and falsifying genomic information in a single database, creating a technically secure system for the safe operation of a single database of genomic information, as well as problems and threats, arising from the receipt of genomic information by "third parties” and proposals for their solution have been developed.
