CRISPR gene editing is widely used by biologists as the DNA-programming tool of choice to alter the genome of organisms and even populations. By changing the DNA of mosquitoes, we could prevent them from reproducing—potentially eradicating them completely. But is that something we should actually want to see? Join Rockefeller University professor Leslie Vosshall as she demonstrates what is—and what will be—possible.
The SciCafe Series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.
