The CRISPR-Cas9 system lets scientists rewrite DNA in living cells and organisms, editing the genetic code that defines life itself. Powerful real-world applications are already happening in basic, biomedical, and agricultural research. As such, applications of CRISPR-Cas9 raise ethical and philosophical questions that must be grappled with sooner than later.
This webinar illustrates how CRISPR genome editing lets scientists rewrite the genetic code; reviews some current examples of how CRISPR is being used in basic, biomedical, and agricultural research; provides an update on the ongoing ethical issues and governance responses associated with CRISPR genome editing; and offers some expert advice and resources for how to get involved in CRISPR genome editing.
Note: The Ethics & Policy Issues in CRISPR Gene Editing webinar provides an in-depth discussion of the global policy and ethics responses to CRISPR technology use in humans.
