P499: Genetically Modified, Ethically Challenged in Splash Fall 2018 (Nov. 10, 2018)
With the growing popularity of CRISPR, genetic engineering is becoming increasingly accessible and finding its way into more and more scientific fields. In this course, we will explore what constitutes genetic modification—from selective plant breeding to CRISPR—and what humans are gaining and losing from its ubiquity. This course will put students in the shoes of scientists and lawmakers as they critically evaluate the costs and benefits of genetic engineering applications.
