Genome editing and its use for plant breeding
Genome editing, Plant breeding
Genome editing has emerged as a powerful tool to precisely modify genomes, with great potential both for research purposes and plant breeding. In this session we would like to review the many recent advances in editing technologies, as well as their uses for research and plant breeding. Also, as putting on the market products obtained from edited plants is subjected to a specific legal framework that in the EU is being revised at this moment, we also welcome contributions discussing this aspect.
