To date, the genome editing applications that have dominated headlines have been medically related—such as therapies meant to treat patients with sickle-cell anemia. But CRISPR, and other editing tools, are poised to make an even broader impact on the world. Indeed, as Jennifer Doudna explained in a recent interview, the earliest practical CRISPR applications that will seize public attention will be in food and agriculture.

In this episode of GEN Live, we’ll talk to experts trying to make genome-edited crops a reality.

A live Q&A session followed the presentation, offering a chance to pose questions to our expert panelist.
