CRISPR in Context: The New World of Human Genetic Engineering
In première gegaan op 26 okt. 2019
It’s happened. The first children genetically engineered with the powerful DNA editing tool called CRISPR Cas9 have been born to a woman in China. Their altered genes will be passed to their children, and their children’s children. Join CRISPR’s co discoverer, microbiologist Jennifer Doudna, as we explore the perils and the promise of this powerful technology. It is not the first time human ingenuity has created something capable of doing us great good and great harm. Are we up to the challenge of guiding how CRISPR will shape the future?
