Genome editing techniques such as CRISPR make it possible to change the DNA of organisms, including humans. With the recent claims of the birth of the first genome-edited babies, scientific and ethical questions abound. How might new advances in our ability to change genomes impact individuals and society? Join us for an interactive discussion on this important topic.
