Genetics is one important element of AWI's whole R&D program, which also includes 'clips' and intradermal injection research and product development.

As part of the panel selection process, it was agreed that nominees be independent and that both AWI and PETA had the right to endorse each other's nominees. Each party will cover the associated costs of their nominees.

AWI has nominated three panel members who specialise in agricultural research. These members are:
