AbstractThe article focuses on the censorship of science, in which bioterrorism and new scientific developments should be published or suppressed. Scientists believe that freedom of inquiry and free sharing of information are essential to the purity and progress of science. Bioterrorism concerns the increasing recognition that advances in biology may facilitate the development of a new generation of biological weapons.
