Please, can I order some DNA? It may sound like science fiction, but Dr. Tiffany Vora is looking at a future where anyone can go online, pick the DNA sequence they want and have it delivered. She talks about how we can use the various DNA to create cells that eat plastic or petroleum or convert sunlight into energy. We already have bacteria that are programmed to eat oil, it’s really a matter of creating something even more efficient. As a research scientist, Faculty director and Vice Chair of Medicine and Digital Biology at Singularity University, Tiffany Vora deals with the future of life science and technology. She gives us a glimpse into her fascinating world.
