Programming Human Cells: The Next Frontier of SynBio for Human Health

What gives a cell its identity? Can it be changed? The traditional developmental biology perspective assumes that cells are defined by their (epigenetic) history. Now, we can see that cell identity is controlled by transcription factors, which can be programmed with deterministic accuracy—that is, we can program cells to become specific types at specific stages. This new paradigm, combined with our ability to read, write, and execute genetic code, opens unprecedented opportunities for programming human cells and improving human health. Watch the video.
