The public is invited to attend a free lecture, “How Will Synthetic Biology Change the Way We Live?” with biologist and entrepreneur J. Craig Venter, author of Life at the Speed of Light: From the Double Helix to the Dawn of Digital Life, and Arizona State University President Michael M. Crow. The event will be presented here at the Heard by Zócalo Public Square and Arizona State University.
Join Venter and Crow as they talk “about the future of synthetic life, how molecular biology can solve our world’s most intractable problems and what’s next for the scientist who sequenced the human genome,” according to the Zócalo Public Square website.
The event is free, but reservations are requested.
