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

MSMC Library Week EXTENDED!

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.

GIFT CARD DRAWING! *YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN*

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.
