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