Digital Youth Earth Talk: “The era of DNA sequencing is affecting us all”

DNA is the basic unit of inheritance to all biological information. It is impossible to understand evolution, the biology of organisms and cells, or even diseases and human behavior without dealing with the concept of the gene. Technologies now even make it possible that pieces of DNA can be inserted into the cells of living organisms in order to allow them to be reprogrammed. How will genome sequencing affect our daily lives? Is it a key technology or a threat to our future? These and other questions will be discussed by Prof. Dr. Axel Janke, speaker of the LOEWE-TBG. The event will take place online, June 17 at 6 pm. It is addressed to young people aged 15-25. Participation is free of charge. Registration: info@foerderverein.senckenberg.de. The event is organized by the Senckenberg Förderverein.
