Scientists are embarking on a biological version of the digital revolution. Until recently, controlling the mechanisms within cells—how they develop and change—was out of reach. But now biologists are finding ways to reprogramme cells at the genetic level, giving them access to the entire operating system of life.

Success is going to require collaboration across biology, computer science, physics and mathematics. The huge rewards will include extending our lifespans, curing a range of debilitating ailments and giving birth to a whole new generation of technology.

This talk took place in in collaboration with the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences and
