0:00 New Year hangover
5:00. Should twins be surprised to have different ancestry results?
13:57 Invitae’s move to DTC
19:33 Cloned, CRISPRed monkeys
26:21 First gene drive in mammals
30:05 Paleogenomic overreach?
Nathan and Laura are back for the first time this year for a wild trip past cloned CRISPRd monkeys and the first gene drive in mammals. (Just that?) But first we have to deal with our hangover from the end of last year.
We talk DTC and end with a discussion of the ancient DNA controversy.
