Symposium: New genome editing technologies for medicine and agriculture – implications for the society
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 symposium aims to present scientific breakthroughs and their implications for research and the public. In the end, this will help us understand how this technology may change our society.
