15. Nessa Carey: Hacking the Code of Life

Genetic modification is a scientific reality, not the stuff of dystopian fiction. CRISPR technology can manipulate the genes of almost any organism with a degree of precision, ease and speed that we could only dream of 10 years ago.

But is it ethical to change the genetic material of organisms in a way that might be passed on to future generations? Who controls the application of this technology?

In her new book Nessa Carey, former Senior Lecturer in Molecular Biology at Imperial College London, explores these questions and explains how gene editing will radically alter our futures.
