Science & Society Forum: Should We Edit the Genome?

The 21st century has brought great strides in biotechnology; designer babies, GMOs (genetically modified organisms), and gene-based medical therapies. With the advent of CRISPR, a genome editing tool that is creating a buzz in the science world, the field of Synthetic Biology has experienced a boom in growth. Learn what this means for us as we explore ways to incorporate this knowledge into our society.
