Te Nohonga Kaitiaki

This project is funded by Genomics Aotearoa to develop guidelines for genomic research on taonga species. The guidelines are being developed as a tool to assist in the planning and execution of genomic research in a manner that honours taonga, kaitiaki and mātauranga Māori. The guidelines support mana whenua and serve as a starting point for hapū and iwi to formulate specific guidance that is relevant to their own tikanga and mātauranga.

On behalf of Te Nohonga Kaitiaki team Maui will outline new guidelines for genomic research on taonga species that have emerged from a Genomics Aotearoa funded research project.
