Tune in and join the conversation on Friday, October 25th at 8 pm EST during the premiere of "CRISPR in Context: The New World of Human Genetic Engineering."
It has happened. A woman in China was born to the first kids genetically engineered with the efficient DNA-editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9. They will pass on their altered genes to their children. Join the microbiologist Jennifer Doudna, co-discovererof CRISPR, as they discuss the risks and potential of this powerful technology. It's not the first time that human ingenuity has developed something that can do great good and great harm to us. Is it the challenge we are facing to determine how CRISPR can shape the future?
