Hi Grace,

The Honor Code says "We cite sources."

Since the help says that the "confirmed with DNA" relationship indicator should be removed if there is not proper source documentation, it seems to me that it is a requirement for confirming with DNA.

Do you think that omitting the source for DNA confirmation should be an exception?
