Description

Thinking Machines: Synthetic Biology

How are innovations in DNA synthesis changing the landscape of medical research, industrial production, food systems, and data storage? What impacts will synthetic biology have on us and the planet, and how can we balance their ethical limits with their possibilities to change the world for the better?

Join us for this upcoming program and networking night, part of the Thinking Machines conversation series at the de Young, featuring Jane Metcalfe, co-founder of Wired magazine, former president of TCHO Chocolate, and founder of Neo.Life magazine; Annalee Newitz, editor of Ars Technica, founding editor of io9, former Editor-in-Chief at Gizmodo, and author of Autonomous; and Emily Leproust, CEO and co-founder of Twist Bioscience.

Tickets include a viewing of the de Young special exhibition, Cult of the Machine, from 6-7pm, the conversation in Koret Auditorium at 7pm, and continued conversation and mingling with a cash bar (drinks and snacks) until 9:30pm.

Thinking Machines at the de Young is made possible with support from AppDynamics, VSCO, and The Molly and David Wadhwani Foundation.
