Bas Rosier – Ph.D. student in chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology – shared his insights in DNA, our biological hard drive. It is the blueprint of life, containing all the instructions to make us grow and function well. But ever since the discovery of DNA’s structure in 1953, scientists have become very creative in using it for other purposes: DNA data storage, DNA nano-materials, human DNA editing. Scientific progress is always driven by curiosity and out-of-the-box thinking – it’s about the idea first, the technological and ethical implications come later.
