If you could, would you edit your DNA? Which diseases should we try to cure, and who decides? Where would you draw the line?
New tools called genome editing technologies are changing how science is done in places like the Crick. They help scientists alter DNA more quickly, more easily and more accurately than ever before.
These tools have the potential to improve human health and the world around us, but they also bring up new important ethical questions and concerns.
Take part in our exhibition, Cut + Paste, and think about these questions, ask your own, and have your say.
