It drew the largest audience of any previous OLLI course. Her first session discussed the issues facing Europe just before the terrorist attacks in Paris. The series on Modern Molecular Biology in October organized by Barry Bowman covered the CRISPR gene editing technoloogy that was the topic of an international conference the following month covering what should be the limits in gene editing what might be the potential impact on evolution. The courses generate funds for UCSC scholarships.
