Indicators of genetic research

Since the early 1990s, genetic research has grown worldwide into an important scientific field and has led to substantial discoveries both in fundamental and applied research. On behalf of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), the Forum for Genetic Research has developed indicators to measure and monitor relevant research activities in Swiss public institutions and to compare them among different countries.
