Michigan Science Center forum to pose the question, "Should we eradicate the mosquito?"

Michigan Science Center forum

If you could eradicate the mosquito from the face of the earth, would you?

That's the essential question being asked at a forum taking place at the Michigan Science Center on September 22 titled, "Should We Engineer the Mosquito?"

The forum will be the first a series on on synthetic biology, a field that may soon give humanity the power to alter the genetic code through a technology in development called CRISPR. Other future forums will include topics like engineering "algae that can synthesize fuel or bacteria that can eat plastics."
