Genome Editing

Follow up work is continuing to engage with the European Institutions, for example with regard to the opportunities for applying genome editing in innovative plant and animal breeding, and the implications for regulatory frameworks.

EASAC also continues to support discussion of the security implications of genome editing: concerns arising from the potential intentional misuse of the technology, and the strategies that may aid the scientific and security communities in preventing or mitigating those risks.
