The Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress Presentation Slides

Following the Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Europe, we have made the following presentation slides from Ana Atanassova, Ian Bancroft, Nigel Halford and Kim Hammond-Kossack available.

Developments in biotechnology regulations – a global perspective
Ana Atanassova provides a global perspective on different governments approaches to gene editing regulation. She explores which kind of regulation enables innovation and the need for scientific evidence in support of regulatory policy.

Genomics-led “traditional” approaches to crop genome engineering
Chemical and radiation mutagenesis, along with Doubled Haploid production and alien introgression, are classed as traditional approaches for crop improvement and are not considered by the European Court of Justice to result in plants classed as GMOs. Ian Bancroft describes recent advances in genomics that can accelerate genome engineering by these methods, illustrating their
impacts on genome structure.

Assessment of the European Court of Justice ruling on gene editing for crop improvements
Nigel Halford talks about the European Court of Justice ruling on gene editing for crop improvements, and Europe’s first and possibly last field trial of gene-edited plants.
