Adapting Species to a Changing World: The Potential of Genome Editing

George Church, Robert Winthrop Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School

Innovative new technologies may enable scientists to manipulate ancient and modern DNA to safeguard ecosystems from invasive organisms, help species recover their genetic diversity, and address issues of climate change. However, as geneticist George Church will discuss, while resurrecting mammoths could help maintain the Arctic permafrost, such developments require thoughtful consideration of complex system interactions and potential unintended consequences.

Lecture. Free and open to the public. Free event parking available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage
