Extracting DNA: The Power to Restore Life

Beth ShapiroJoin Beth Shapiro, a National Geographic emerging explorer, MacArthur Fellow and professor in the department of ecology and
evolutionary biology at UC Santa Cruz in conversation with KQED Forum's Michael Krasny.
Through her explorations of prehistoric DNA, Shapiro has developed important new approaches for inferring the factors that shape the dynamics of species’ populations. She is able to observe mammoths and dodos, witness the last ice age and study the eventual arrival of humans in North America. Her research with ancient DNA takes her on a journey through time that gives science and society a whole new view of our tumultuous past and a potentially life changing reality for our future.

Also, Beth Shapiro will be featured in KQED's QUEST new episode, Reawakening Extinct Species, airing on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30pm on KQED 9 and online at kqed.org/quest. QUEST investigates the new genetic technologies that are making it possible for scientists to attempt de-extinction. It may be possible, but is it right to turn back the clock?
