Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Are we playing God with our future or saving humankind? Join us for an interactive discussion panel featuring a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, an FBI Special Agent, an immunologist from the CDC, a professor from Georgia Tech and an ethicist from Emory. We will discuss what synthetic biology is, what good it can do, the potential dangers of this technology, public perceptions about the field, and other topics relevant to synthetic biology's potential role in society.

This panel is offered in collaboration with the Atlanta Science Festival and is organized by the Lambert High School iGEM team.
