Human Genetic Data is the key of most medical improvements. So it’s used in many researches in recent years and this has caused many legal and ethical issues. All of solutions are coming from this question that what is the legal relationship with their genetic information and what rights they can have that must be supported by legislator and respected by researchers. With the analysis of other countries law and the related opinions based on legal doctrine and analysis of the proposed approaches about necessary structure for legal protection of Genetic Data, we can say this information should be recognized as a religious property by regulations and protected against all of abusing such as discriminations in employment or insurance. Moreover the best way for supporting people against genetic discrimination and recognize genetic identity is that genetic information is considered as personal property.
