Hosted by Bryan Johnson, the third episode of Explorations, ‘Changing the Nature of Nature’ focuses on synthetic biology and how to use genomics to change the world around us. Explorations is a series of videos with thought leaders from all different areas of advancing science.

“Synthetic biology is many things, including harnessing the incredible diversity that we get from ancient evolution and laboratory evolution” – George Church

The video sets high hopes for what is possible with synthetic biology, including engineering wild species, reversing ageing, de-extinction, and even redesigning the world around us. All possible through taking control of the simple genetic code which runs through all living things. 


You can look back over the first episode on the power of coding, and the second on neurotechnology.
