TED Sunday #005: Paul Ewald on whether we can domesticate germs?

I'm really looking forward to this one. Domesticating Germs for our own benefit! Could we exploit evolution to encourage diseases to evolve to mildness. I've always been of the view that if we don't play God, who will. We just need to be very smart, and very careful.


It's important to point out that I'm doing a PhD in Astrophysics so I'm not qualified to comment on the legitimacy of this.


Thanks again Roger for suggesting this talk

It's a notion that receives quite a lot of coverage in this book as you can see from the comments: Survival of the Sickest.
