About Jonathan Anomaly
I'm currently working on issues at the intersection of ethics, economics, and biology. These include collective action problems like antibiotic resistance. I'm especially interested in the moral and political dimensions of synthetic biology. With the advent of CRISPR-Cas9, and the manipulation of gene drives, we will be able to eliminate disease vectors, resurrect extinct species, and alter existing species, including our children. Almost nobody is talking about this, almost everyone should be.
