Active Genetics: A Genetic Swiss Army Knife

Distinguished Professor Ethan Bier pioneered the development of a breakthrough gene drive technology called active genetics, revolutionizing the way scientists engineer the transfer of specific genetic traits from one generation to another. The technology is a driving force behind the Tata Institute for Genetics and Society (TIGS), established to focus on immunizing mosquitoes against malaria disease transmission. Join us for an eye-opening presentation to understand the various ways in which active genetic elements can be used to control the transmission of pathogens, treat the effects of debilitating diseases, restore natural ecosystems, reverse antibiotic resistance in bacteria, and much more.
