They have also brought some moral issues with themselves too. So, by taking into notice that the rapid progress in genetics and vast concentrations of information on genome and our understandings about the inheritance of diseases, necessary and essential decisions has to be made for considering human values, and the dignity of the research participants. Methods: the existing study was conducted by the examination of 50 research papers on genetic disorders, which is currently available at Jahad Daneshgahi’s Scientific Information center. The selected articles were examined from the aspect of five moral genetic research guide codes. Findings and conclusion: in 42 percent of studies, individuals participated in the research after receiving their consents, only 10 percent of the study included genetic counseling for individuals. 16 percent of the studies were conducted by the permission of the moral committee, while the principle of confidentiality was observed during the studies.
