Paving the way from predictions to plants in the ground
Paving the way for breeders to adopt the tools, we will improve gene-editing technology to test our theoretical predictions in the lab and in the field, while making sure our innovations are responsible, legal, ethical and socially acceptable.
We will develop new legal and social frameworks that encourage acceptance of new technologies and protect the rights of all parties, including intellectual property rights.
