Learn about technologies to make synthetic DNA and manipulate genes, in this pair of videos from NOVA Wonders: Can We Make Life? Biotechnology uses biological processes or the genetic modification of organisms to make practical products. The first video describes how laboratories can make synthetic genetic sequences from chemical building blocks. The second video illustrates the revolutionary technology of CRISPR-Cas9, which allows scientists to edit the genome of any organism. This resource is part of the NOVA Wonders Collection.
