In this episode we’re discussing CRISPR, which is a gene editing tool that acts like a pair of molecular scissors, capable of cutting strands of DNA. CRISPR technology is a simple but extremely powerful tool for editing genomes. It allows researchers to easily alter DNA sequences and modify gene function. It should go without saying, this is equal parts very cool and very scary. The episode is cohosted by Christal Sheppard, distinguished fellow at the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center, and inaugural director of the Midwest Regional Office of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and guests, Jacob S. Sherkow, Professor of Law at the University of Illinois, and Samantha Zyontz, Fellow at the Center for Law and the Biosciences and Research Fellow of Intellectual Property at Stanford Law School.
