Today, we will present the third hour of the four hour program by Ken Burns-“The Gene: An Intimate History.” This is a four-hour documentary adapted from the award-winning book of the same name by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee and will continue in subsequent weeks.

The series tells the story of the rapid evolution of genetic science from Gregor Mendel’s groundbreaking experiment in the 19th century to CRISPR, and the hope that newfound powers to alter DNA with pinpoint precision will transform the treatment of some of the world’s most complex and challenging diseases. The series also tackles the daunting ethical challenges that these technologies pose.
