Solution

The correct option is D All the above
Humans have had a dubious history of using new knowledge for a negative purpose. Moreover, the human genome is a very personal information. It is almost like knowing another person’s name, bank account number, ATM PIN cards and passwords to e-mail accounts. It is very important to protect the knowledge of human genome with laws that prevent unlawful usage.
