Intro to Personal Genetics Workshop (Part 2 of 2) at the Simsbury Public Library – Simsbury, CT
April 25, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Genetic tools offer solutions to significant environmental challenges. However, many people wonder about the unintended consequences that can arise from altering our ecosystem. This program will focus on three real, experimental uses of gene editing to improve agriculture, save an endangered species, and revive the woolly mammoth as a climate-stabilization strategy. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the questions, risks, and benefits of using gene editing technology to address today’s environmental problems.
