On the 6th September, leaders in the field of livestock genetics will gather at The Roslin Institute where they will discuss the future of farming and the implications of Genome Engineering. 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. This one day event will bring together people from academia, industry and regulatory bodies to discuss the emerging challenges, inform future policy decisions to ensure that the potential socio-economic benefits of this research can be achieved.
