Genomic medicine on Big Ideas

How is genomics changing modern medicine? There is a long way to go, but already it is being used to improve the diagnosis of rare conditions, to treat some cancers, and in preventative health. What does the future hold for genomic medicine and how is it improving healthcare? Are we really on the cusp of a new era of personalized medicine? A panel of experts talk to Paul Barclay about the promise and the challenges of genomics in medicine.

Gene editing on Catalyst

CRISPR is a powerful gene-editing technique that is transforming the field of genetics. Faster, easier and cheaper than previous gene modification methods, the dream of treating cancer or curing hereditary gene diseases is one step closure. However, with the power to change DNA come ethical implications. CRISPR gives us the ability to alter the evolution of an entire species. Scientists are excited but are aware that they need to be careful how they use this revolutionary gene editing tool.
