Julie Legault
SingularityU Canada Biotech Faculty

Biotechnology is entering an exciting new phase in its rapid evolution: democratization. Democratization means that biotechnology is moving out of traditional labs, and into our homes and communities. From teenagers engineering yeast in their bedrooms, to gene editing in the womb, to animal-free meat and prospecting for million-dollar microbes on the open sea, this new phase of biotechnology is full of opportunities. In this short talk, Julie will introduce the new players, the latest breakthrough tools for innovation, and explore some of the social, economic and ethical questions that grow from this changing landscape.
