Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Berkeley is sharing the Nobel Prize for chemistry this year. Jennifer Donna has one for breakthrough work on genetic editing. Science reporter Molly Peterson has more doubt Niko invented a tool called CRISPR Cast nine with the Nobel Committee called Genetic Scissors. This Year's prize is about Rewriting the code of life down, and French researcher Emmanuelle Charpentier discovered a way to cut into broken genetic material, remove it and replace it. The scissors can change DNA of people, plants and animals, creating cancer therapies and curing genetic diseases. As Donna told Cooties Forum. These are all things that are within the realm. Of possibility now and so we have to really start thinking about what? How do we use this technology Responsibly, Donna and sharpen today are the first women ever to share the chemistry prize. I'm Molly Peterson. The
