These resources focus on the ethics underlying how researchers practice their science inclusive of the ethics of sampling, capacity building, community engagement, ‘parachute’ (extractive) science, and ethics review (IRB). These resources are not exclusively about research on living humans, but also include the implications for genetic research involving Ancestors (e.g. ancient DNA, sediment DNA, and archaeogenetics) and nonhuman primates.

    Stefanoudis et. al., “Turning the tide on parachute science” 
    This article is a great resource for explaining parachute science and how not to engage in it. While it is not explicitly about genetics, it is relevant to genetic research.
