    The Future of DNA and CRISPR

    “The struggle between bacteria and virus is the longest-running arms race in history,” says biochemist Sam Sternberg in this enlightening talk about CRISPR. This exciting gene editing technology, in which Sam Sternberg is an expert, has the possibility to eliminate disease, bring back distinct animals and even rethink how we view life on Earth.
