Research Sub-Question 3

Question: 
Are there any questions genomic scientists should not be allowed to study?
Yes Rationale: 
Scientists should not delve into issues that could damage people or society, such as looking for genes that influence negative behavior.
No Rationale: 
Censorship limits scientific progress. Knowledge is always valuable, even if it leads to uncomfortable findings.
Maybe Rationale: 
Controversial research should be allowed, but only after it has been reviewed by an independent ethics committee.
