New project on Genome Editing
A project has been initiated to take a broad view of the science and applications related to genome editing. The first meeting of the EASAC Working Group was held on 29 June 2016 in Brussels. Among the key topics to be covered in this project are: opportunities coming within range from advances in the fundamental science and biological modelling; specific applications for human somatic, human germline, xenotransplantation, gene drive, laboratory animal models, animals in agriculture, plant breeding, micro-organisms and other applications for the bioeconomy; ethics and other societal issues; and governance, including regulatory frameworks. EASAC welcomes contributions of written evidence on any of these topics.
