Genome Editing and the Future of Farming

Date: 6th September 2016

Location: Roslin Institute

Time: 09:30 - 17:00

Cost: Free

Professor Wayne Powell, Principal and Chief Executive of SRUC will be one of the keynote speakers at the ‘Genome Editing and the Future of Framing’ conference.

The event is being held at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh on Tuesday 6 September.

Leaders in the field of livestock genetics will discuss the future of farming and the implications of genome engineering at the event, being organised by the National Institutes of Bioscience.

A series of talks and panel discussion sessions will examine the global scene and case studies from academia and industry, highlighting the opportunities and challenges in the field.

New genetic techniques are improving our understanding of biological processes and genetic conditions, and are leading to novel treatment options and disease prevention methods.

Using these techniques to improve crops and livestock will contribute to address the pressing global challenge of food security.

The one day event will bring together people from academia and industry and regulatory bodies to discuss the emerging challenges, inform future policy decisions and ensure that the potential socio-economic benefits of this research  are achieved.
