    Proceeding with Caution: First global guidelines proposed for ancient DNA research

    Hmmm, I guess we will be needing to read between the lines a little more carefully:

    It's our hope that these guidelines will raise the integrity of ancient DNA research around the world by minimizing damage to collections of human remains; ensuring sensitivity to the perspectives of stakeholder groups, especially when these groups are marginalized; and reducing opportunities for the misuse of results. We expect these guidelines will undergo further development as the field continues to evolve.

    Five globally applicable guidelines for DNA research on human remains

    (1) Researchers must ensure that all regulations were followed in the places where they work and from which the human remains derived.
    (2) Researchers must prepare a detailed plan prior to beginning any study.
    (3) Researchers must minimize damage to human remains.
    (4) Researchers must ensure that data are made available following publication to allow critical re-examination of scientific findings.
    (5) Researchers must engage with stakeholders from the beginning of a study and ensure respect and sensitivity to other stakeholder perspectives.
