The Genetic Revolution airs Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 8 p.m. for The Nature of Things on CBC-TV!
Technologies like CRISPR are making it possible to quickly and cheaply change the DNA of all living things, including humans. Today, genes can be edited almost as easily as words on a computer screen. This new ability to alter our DNA holds the promise of curing disease, saving threatened species, solving the problem of world hunger and maybe even obtaining human perfection. But will the promise be fulfilled?
The Genetic Revolution shows that human science is at a tipping point. Human beings are at the very cusp of technologies and decisions that can change the world as we know it.
