CRISPR technology enables researchers to change the genetic code by removing and changing the order of genetic information in a cell or organism.  It is now easily accessibly and it is taking the science of genetic modification to new levels of precision and speed.  Other guests on this program include Lee Goldman (Cardiologist, Dean of Columbia University Medical Center, and author of “Too Much of a Good Thing; How Four Key Survival Traits Are Now Killing Us”) and Josiah Zayner (Biohacker and former NASA synthetic biologist).
