Gene Editing: Innovation and Impact in Missouri
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/gene-editing-innovation-and-impact-in-missouri
In November, renowned panelists came together at the Danforth Center to discuss cutting-edge gene editing technology and the role it will play in human health, agriculture and food systems, and creating 21st century jobs.
Gene Editing: Innovation and Impact in Missouri, “We need to grow more food in the next, Educational Foundation and Benson Hill Biosystems collaborated to host a symposium on gene editing. The symposium, “Gene Editing: Innovation and Impact in Missouri,” took place on November 13, 2018, and brought together specialists to discuss the role of gene editing in human health, agriculture and food systems, and creating 21st century jobs. Gene editing technology is relatively new, but has since

Efficient and customizable genome editing tool
the basis for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology. This efficient and customizable method has the ability to target multiple genes simultaneously, an advantage that sets it apart from other gene editing, . “Gene editing is now as common in a lab as pipetting,” said Jim Carrington, president, and development with the ability to move agriculture improvements to the market.” Gene editing can, in the science community. CRISPR genome editing technology is powerful in the sense it allows

Gene-editing with CRISPR/Cas9 accelerates trait development in crop plants.
(Chemical & Engineering News) Transforming Agriculture, Again, A new day is dawning for agriculture. When asked to describe the magnitude of the coming change, experts harken back to seminal advances such as the rise of mechanization, the invention of synthetic fertilizers and crop protection chemicals, and the advent of transgenic crops. Within the next five years—less time than it takes to discover and commercialize a new agricultural chemical—gene editing will transform seed and trait
