We will begin by examining some of the basic scientific developments that make intentional genetic engineering increasingly possible. Then we will discuss the range of views that people may have with regard to this possibility. We will try to illuminate the beliefs underlying these different views, their strengths, and their problems. Free registration is requested, and is required for lunch.  Underwritten by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
