Genetic Engineering


    Scientists say that the field of genetics is making progress at an exponential pace, but with great genetic power comes great responsibility. On this episode, we’ll examine some of the questions that come up as scientists explore the amazing promise of genetics. We’ll talk about human health and the serious work of trying to eradicate disease, and we’re also going to geek out about non-human aspects of this research like the innovations that could bring us cuter dogs and better chocolate.
