“CRISPR is emerging as a convenient tool that scientists can use to edit the DNA of almost any living thing, including humans. It could potentially be used to cure disease, enhance the human body, or even change DNA for future generations--which raises a lot of big questions.” http://bit.ly/2uwzzHD

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institute. Benjamin Franklin served as the United States Ambassador to France from 1776 until 1785. As ambassador to France, he was in charge of securing aid for the American Revolution from abroad and forming an alliance with the French, both of which were instrumental in the success of American independence efforts. Due to his wit, charm and reputation as a renowned intellectual, Franklin was beloved there and charmed the French with his uniquely American style, especially his iconic fur hat. http://bit.ly/1SkrJX6 IMAGE: The reception of Benjamin Franklin in France | 1888 | The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
