Tuesday, October 18th at 19:00 - 20:00
Since the birth of civilisation, human beings have manipulated other life forms. 'Redesigning Life' explores how scientists are editing genes using molecular scissors, with new technology of genome editing being applied to practically any species of plants and animals. These powerful new technologies can lead to revolutionary developments but also raises important ethical dilemmas and potential dangers.
