For the first time in our history, just about anyone can manipulate the fundamental DNA script of humans or any other species. Using the technique known as gene editing, or CRISPR, if you have access to basic laboratory equipment and are smart enough to button up a lab coat the right way, you can hack the code of life. This technology will both revolutionise and democratise research, enabling scientists to alter any species they like, no matter how obscure. Come along to find out more and to make your mind up about how you think this technology should be used.
