Early awareness of the potential misuse of life science research will help reduce risk and avoid controversy later regarding the publication of research results. A new Biosecurity Advisory Committee would facilitate dialogue between scientists and security experts about dual-use research. These are the conclusions of a committee established by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. The purpose of the committee was to advise the Dutch State Secretary for Education, Culture and Science on this subject.
