What You'll Learn:

Gene editing is an everyday reality—the 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to biochemist Jennifer Doudna and microbiologist Emmanuelle Charpentier for their pivotal work in identifying the ability of a particular CRISPR system to snip designated genes. The real-life impacts of this gene-editing mechanism range from necessary applications like improved crops and potential cancer treatments to more ethically ambiguous advancements like “designer babies.” Renowned science writer Kevin Davies weaves the intricate story of CRISPR—a tale of competing ideas, rivalrous scientists, and a biological technology with the edge to alter life in a single cut.
