Cut & Paste with DNA: Changing an Organism’s Genetic Information


The ability to manipulate DNA sequences has opened up a new world of potential implications in research, medicine, ecology, and other fields. Genome editing technology, which allows fast and precise changing of DNA, has a wide array of potential positive uses, including human gene therapy, eradication of disease-carrying insects, and many others. However, these applications are not without negative biological and societal implications. Join us as Dr. Evan Merkhofer, MSMC Division of Natural Sciences, explains uses and consequences of this paradigm-shifting technology. Co-sponsored by the Division of Natural Sciences.


Cut & Paste with DNA will take place February 14th at 4 p.m. in the Kaplan Library, Room 218. This event has been approved for College Connection FYE credit, but students at all levels are welcome. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!

Kaplan Library is changing – because of you!! Each day of Library Week introduces a new or improved service suggested by the Spring 2016 Student Library Survey. To celebrate, we’re giving away TWENTY $10 Visa gift cards throughout the week. Watch your email for details.
