    REWRITING LIFE: THE PROMISE AND PERIL OF EDITING YOUR DNA


      -  Tickets available

    For the first time in history, human beings have been given the keys to the car called Evolution. A breakthrough technology now allows us to modify genes with ease and precision. Within the next year or so, its power will be starkly revealed when a living, breathing wooly mammoth is born, the first since the Ice Age. For human applications, trials of this new technology are already underway seeking to eradicate various debilitating genetic diseases. But like teenagers at the wheel, we’re still learning to drive. Are we zooming toward a happy, healthy, well-fed future, or toward a cliff? Join bioethicists, evolutionary biologists, and the pioneering scientists using this tool in their labs right now as we plot a course toward a future that could hold both promise and peril.
