Medical and agricultural perspectives on new genome editing technologies

21 november 2019 13:00 till 16:30 | Konferens

Genome-editing techniques have sparked a revolution in biological and medical research, as
they allow precise, user-defined modification of the genomes of almost any plant or animal.
This research has huge implications for plant breeding and medicine, and therefore for
society. However, countries with relatively similar cultures, such as the Nordic countries, show clear differences in the public debate and governmental regulation of these novel tools. This symposium aims to present scientific breakthroughs and the subsequent debate in Nordic countries. In the end, this will help us understand how this technology can change our society.
