Professor Jennifer Doudna, one the pioneers of Crispr-Cas9 gene editing explains how this important discovery enables precise changes to our DNA , which can be used to correct mutations that cause genetic disease and completely eradicate it from a germline. Doudna raises the 4 key issues of debate around this revolutionary discovery and suggests what will have the most immediate impact.
This program considers some of the possible benefits from detecting and preventing hereditary diseases in people, plants and animals to engineering resilient crops improving the quality and quantity of plants in farming. Potential problems are also considered, alongside secular and religious perspectives on the morality of intervening in nature at the most basic level (our DNA).
