Everybody in Europe and the US should have their genetic fingerprints
entered into an international database to enable law enforcement agencies to
fight crime and terrorism in an unstable world, according to James Watson,
the co-discoverer of the DNA double helix (Editor: and Nobel Prize winner).

"Everybody in Europe and the US should have their genetic fingerprints entered into an international database to enable law enforcement agencies to fight crime and terrorism in an unstable world."
"It is not that I am insensitive to the concerns about individual privacy or to the potential for inappropriate use of genetic information, but it would make life safer."
"The sacrifice of this particular form of anonymity does not seem an unreasonable price to pay..."
"A lack of understanding of genetic complexities leaves one susceptible to the worst anxieties and conspiracy theories."
