- The working groups within the ASHMG are made up of members of ASHMG, who focus on certain thematic areas in the field of human genetics, molecular biology, Forensic genetics, Genetics education, Bioinformatics, and Bioethics.
- The specific purpose of the working group is based on the nature of the chosen thematic area, it can be, for example, the preparation of current data for routine practice or a more detailed analysis of selected cases.
- The working group will provide materials for the ASHMG website (www.geneticsalbania.com), where information on the tasks of the working group, the composition of the working group (including contact with selected members of the group), membership conditions, and of course, other relevant information that the working group will want to publish.
- The working group shall elect a leader or his deputy from among its members to serve as contact persons.
- The working group regularly informs the ASHMG committee about its activities in the form of minutes of meetings or a report on the group’s activities at least once a year.
- A formal request for the establishment of a working group is submitted by a group of members of ASHMG to the committee through the scientific secretary of firstname.lastname@example.org. The request must carefully justify the area to be addressed by the working group and the outputs of its work.
- Education Genetics working group. Leader to be solved.
- Working group of laboratories performing genetics examination. This group currently brings together laboratories that actively operate in molecular genetics techniques and share the results. It is open to other interested parties.
- Forensic Genetics. Forensic genetics could lead to a career spent analyzing DNA, helping to solve crimes, and identifying victims.
- Bioinformatics community. Community of people dedicated to bioinformatics in Albania.
The European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) has developed a website where educational materials for various target groups – both for geneticists – professionals and for the general public, university students, but also students at secondary or primary schools.
This new website is called EuroGEMS – an abbreviation of the words “Euro” and “Genetic Educational Materials & Sources” and can be found at www.eurogems.org.
