Ken Burns Presents The Gene: An Intimate History. The series uses science, social history and personal stories to weave together a historical biography of the human genome, while also exploring the stunning breakthroughs in understanding the impact genes play on heredity, disease and behavior. From the story of the remarkable accomplishments of the earliest gene hunters and the bitterly fought race to read the entire human genome, to the unparalleled excitement and ethical challenges of CRISPR and gene therapy, the documentary takes viewers on a journey through key genetics discoveries that represent some of the greatest achievements in human history. The clips will be followed by a panel of expert.
