This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at CRISPR. Gene editing via CRISPR and the Cas-9 protein was heralded as one of the biggest scientific acheivements of the last decade, but what exactly is it? How does one program a protein to precisely cut strands of DNA? The discussion of what CRISPR technology is being used for now and in the future is a rigourous one filled with all kinds of ethical bounderies and gray areas. Listen now to find out where they are drawing the line! Music by: Joakim Karud –

Hello! I am a graduate marine biologist heading into a specialization of marine mammals! Here at Conduct Science, I am the lead of Team Kilo, we produce articles and The Conduct Science Podcast hosted by myself and Mitch. Come listen to us talk about a whole variety of topics, new episodes every Thursday! I also host an interview series called Under the Microscope where I talk to scientists from around the world in many different fields about their experience, work, and methodologies. And as if that wasn’t enough content every Friday I release a short-form podcast called The Method Section, which is aimed at scientists old and new looking at the community, methodologies, and many other topical and interesting science news!
