This course will provide a background in basic genetics from DNA to RNA to proteins. The goal is to give Osher members the tools to understand genes, genetic predispositions, and gene editing. Dramatic advances in gene editing technology will ultimately allow editing of any gene in any organism (including humans), unleashing the power to alter the course of evolution. This course will give students the background necessary to enter into the deep social and ethical issues that must be discussed and understood by the global society.
