In less than a decade, CRISPR has transformed biology, and galvanized public debate. But the history of scientists' efforts to edit the DNA of living cells goes back much further. Chemist David Liu and molecular biologist Feng Zhang will explore the ways scientists have turned bacteria's natural immune systems into technologies that allow them to explore and edit the genome with unprecedented power and precision, and the questions these technologies raise.
