CRISPR Gene Editing in Livestock & Aquaculture

Gene editing technologies have come a long way in the last few decades. While we’ve been exploring these applications in agriculture and livestock for quite some time, recent breakthroughs have made editing DNA much more precise, effective, less expensive, and ultimately – more feasible. Spearheading the movement is CRISPR, along with ZFNs and TALEN, and it’s rapidly re-shaping how we think about animal innovation. This presentation outlines how these technologies work, where they’re being applied in agriculture, how FDA regulates them, and who the key innovators are.
