Everyone has the right to know his or her own genome information by birth

 


It is the most fundamental right for a biological information object in the universe to know one's own information construct such as one's own genome. It is about identifying oneself and understanding the network of interaction partners around one. 


Everyone has the right to protect his or her own genome information by birth

It is the second most fundamental right for a biological information object in the universe to protect and conceal one's own information construct such as one's own genome to protect one's own interest and dignity in the biological interaction network.

 

Genome information is scientific and personal information before medical information. People have the rights to know and decide what to do with them ahead of doctors and medical organizations

 



Everyone has the right not to be discriminated solely by one's own genome type and information by birth.

It is the third most fundamental right for a biological information object, such as a human, in the universe not to be discriminated by one's own information construct type such as one's own genome in order to have an equal opportunity of survival and living in the biological interaction network.

  • This is to prevent a situation where a society or a company excludes certain people for his/her genome type in a competition and employment. The third right has many issues as phenotypes often endow discrimination in societies. For example, an army can excludes certain volunteers for their physical features. It is a kind of discrimination. An employer can discriminate applicants duly because the type of work is such. 

The genome type of excluded volunteers/applicants are associated with phenotypes. However, the association can never be 100% in biological world, it is not acceptable to pre-exclude volunteers by checking the genometypes only. This will be similar to discriminating people for his/her racial background (here, race implies some genetic background).
