GMOs 2.0: Reengineering Life, from Plants to People

This webcast explores the new techniques of synthetic biology and gene editing, and their capacity to redesign nature, from seeds to insects to people.

The technologies are being rapidly developed and robustly funded, in most cases well ahead of safety assessments, public engagement, and social oversight. What does this mean for people and the planet – and what can we do about it?

Moderated by Marcy Darnovsky, Center for Genetics and Society
