CRISPR is an adaptive immune system found in a bacterium and archaea, which is now used as a tool for human genome modification. And technology is developing fast. This episode is about what CRISPR is, how it can be used, and what ethical dilemmas are involved. And how CRISPR is more than a tool for genetic engineering, it is a tool for understanding the interaction between the bacteria and viruses in our gut, our immune system and maybe even our behavior. The potential of science is full of hopes and dreams, dangers and fears. (see all podcasts here)
