These breakthrough technologies have enabled rapid and accurate diagnostics for diseases, improving prevention and treatment; they have created GMO crops that grow more rapidly and robustly, leading to reduction in world hunger. But could these promising technologies also have a dark side? What are the potential consequences of a technology that can creat designer babies, or one that can predict more than your predisposition to disease? In this talk we will discuss the technologies and their possible ethical ramificatons in society.
