Streamed live on 5 April 2017.

On this episode of “Read Science!”, Jeff and Joanne welcomed two authors of recent books to talk about genetics and genomics as they relate to our families of origin and our children. Bonnie Rochman is the author of The Gene Machine: How Genetic Technologies Are Changing the Way We Have Kids–and the Kids We Have, and Joselin Linder is the author of The Family Gene: A Mission to Turn My Deadly Inheritance Into a Hopeful Future. We tackle some of the big questions about the future of genetic engineering when it comes to humans, and we learn about what it’s like to be part of a family with its own genetic mutation.
