Gene Editing with Python

Episode #335, published Fri, Sep 24, 2021, recorded Wed, Sep 15, 2021

Gene therapy holds the promise to permanently cure diseases that have been considered life-long challenges. But the complexity of rewriting DNA is truly huge and lives in its own special kind of big-data world.

On this episode, you'll meet David Born, a computational biologist who uses Python to help automate genetics research and helps move that work to production.
