Up next- I Got a Chip Implanted in a Biohacker’s Garage:

A mail-order CRISPR kit, manufactured by Dr. Josiah Zayner is turning the scientific and medical communities upside down.

Zayner, a biophysicist turned biohacker, believes we’re dragging our feet on realizing CRISPR’s potential. So his do-it-yourself CRISPR kit allows people to experiment with gene editing in the confines of their own homes.

Many critics argue that genetic engineering should be strictly left to the licensed and trained. However, Zayner thinks the possibly life-altering effects of CRISPR technology far outweigh any adverse concerns.

Zayner’s hope is to make CRISPR accessible to everyone, rather than limit its access to the rich and powerful.

Christopher Lewis Dawkins was mistakenly omitted from the video credits. Dawkins is the cinematographer for the story.
