Genome editing

Genome editing is an umbrella term for a range of tools that enable precise changes to the genome of an organism. Applied worldwide by researchers in academia, governmental research institutions and industry, these innovations represent a promising next step in research towards beneficial uses in medicine, agriculture and the bio-economy aimed at addressing some of society’s grand challenges.

At EuropaBio, genome editing is a key topic dealt with by our New Technologies Working Group. For information on the group please contact Christopher Gallasch below.
