What is genome engineering? A special event for the science curious.
What is Genome Engineering? Where is it used? How do we benefit from it? Why should we care? We are exposed to terms like GMOs, genetic therapies, and gene editing. But what are these?
At this first Genome Writers Guild (GWG) satellite event, Genome Engineer, Dr. Aron Geurts and Dr. Juan Alfonzo addressed those questions. The event was designed for a general audience to explain what these technologies are and how they are already playing a part in our lives.
GWG member Adam Sychla initiated and planned the event which took place at Ohio University on March 31st, 2018. A lively question and answer session followed the talks.
