Coming up on Forum:
Breeding mosquitos resistant to the malaria virus; designing
human babies that are free of genetic disorders; creating a
species of unicorns. These goals are all seemingly impossible for

breakthroughs in gene-editing technology, like CRISPR/Cas9 -- a
new method of reorganizing genetic material. UC Berkeley
Professor Jennifer Doudna, one of the first pioneers of CRISPR,
joins Forum to discuss the future of gene-editing technology and
its potential impact on human and non-human life.
