Reinventing Nature And Ourselves

November 21, 2012

Hour 1:           What will happen when we’re able to alter the genetic code of plants, animals, and even ourselves to outsmart diseases, reduce waste, and create new sources of energy? According to our guest this hour, we’re already there. We’ll talk with George Church [1], Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, Director of  PersonalGenomes.org [2], and co-author of the new book “Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves” (Basic Books, 2012).
