The Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany strongly cautions against expanding the scope of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Nagoya Protocol to include digital sequence information. Such an expansion would have far-reaching negative consequences. The Alliance published a statement about this issue.
However, in 2013, the Alliance did publish a joint statement during the EU legislative process pointing out the foreseeable difficulties of implementing the NP for non-commercial research. Indeed, experience now confirms that, as a result of implementation of the NP, international cooperation in biodiversity research, the analysis of human and animal pathogen-vectors, and the investigation of plant diseases, among others, have been significantly obstructed.
