Such guidelines were collected and drafted into the 1976 Federal Register as the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant DNA Molecules (NIH Guidelines, 1976), and were revised multiple times immediately after and in the subsequent years, most recently in March 2013, with a slight modification of the title to become the Niff Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant and Synthetic Nucleic Acids (National Institutes of Health, 2013).
The DNA sequences can be used for preparing recombinant DNA molecules in order to produce TNF-binding protein and TNF receptor.
Although the NIH Guidelines have been relaxed since they were first released with several amendments, they did achieve their intended effect by providing researchers with a set of guidelines and practices for constructing and handling recombinant DNA, as well as micro-organisms and viruses that contained recombinant DNA molecules.
Safety and ethical debates among scientists preceded that, culminating in 1976 with the release of the "NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant DNA Molecules," also known at "the phone book" for its exhaustive length.
