Several events have already taken place that led to the development of this group. First was the formation of the SETAC North America (SNA) OMICS Dialog Group, which conducted an International Workshop during the SNA Meeting in Vancouver 2014. A Special Session at SETAC Europe meeting in Barcelona 2015 was also held, and a follow up session will be conducted during the SNA Meeting in Salt Lake City 2015.
The group is very active and it is currently working towards producing a White Paper by 2016, which will describe the state of the science, identify regulatory needs and applications and provide a roadmap for the implementation of OMICS methods in different aspects of the regulatory arena.
