New Podcast Episode – Rewriting the Code of Life

Two scientists recently shared the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for transforming an obscure bacterial immune mechanism, called CRISPR, into “genetic scissors” – an editing tool for re-writing the code of life.

The two female Nobel Prize winners accomplished this through collaboration – which is exactly how two Canadian scientists – also women – are working to crack the code on two incurable diseases – a type of congenital blindness in children, and a deadly form of brain tumours.

Join host Randene Neill for episode eight of Genome BC’s podcast, the Code of Life, as she interviews Drs. Beth Simpson and Sheila Singh to learn how this game changing genomics technology could make a difference toward curing two incurable diseases.
