Public panel discussion: Altering plants, microbes and people
Supported by the Public Engagement team of the University of Bristol, researchers from BrisSynBio, Bristol’s new Synthetic Biology Centre, discuss about the potential and potential risks of synthetic biology applications:
"The emerging discipline of synthetic biology may be applied to a range of sectors, from using microorganisms as factories for food and fuel, smart therapeutics, improved crops and even altered humans. Should we embrace the potential of these new technologies? Or is there more cause for concern?"
