We can alter the human genome, but is that really a good idea? In this brave new world, biohacking, a new system called CRISPR and gene editing may possibly be rewriting our futures.   In today's episode, we talk to Dr Nessa Carey about the complex world of genetics and epigenetics, including discussions on the true purpose of so-called “junk DNA”. We also discuss how viruses may alter our genetic code, as well as the future of genetic and epigenetic editing and the moral dilemma surrounding this technology.
