Prof. Tim, thanks for your respoond! That is a promising policy! But We may still face the pressure from “business secret” of DSI, as currently, some of private companies hide their valuable DSI and prevent them from public access in order to avoid ABS obligation and at the same time raise it business value and academic value. Also, we may still face the challenge that how to trace back the DSI as DOI, especially in the circumstance that such DSI was used and reused multiple times.
We know the data, as innovative method, is a double-edged sword toward biodiversity. On the one hand, eDNA technology brought a large convenient on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) system; however, one the other hand, eDNA technology is increasing the difficulty for the cross-border supervision. Is it a good way to govern the sustainability for DSI（Digital Sequence Information）on biodiversity, especially towards ABS system?
