GLP Releases Global Gene Editing Regulation Tracker and IndexJanuary 29, 2020
The Genetic Literacy Project has developed two interactive tools that track and index gene editing and gene editing regulations worldwide, helping to illuminate how regulations can encourage or hinder innovation.
The Global Gene Editing Regulation Tracker and Index sum up gene editing regulations in the field of agriculture, medicine, and gene drives per country, giving a picture of each country's regulatory timeline, and indicate which products and therapies are in the pipeline. Another important feature of the tracker is the information on the reaction of gene editing critics, as well as the scientist and public interest groups that are pushing to give the technology a chance.
The Gene Editing Regulatory Index, developed by GLP in partnership with Consumer Choice Center, serves as a companion tool with the tracker as it turns the information from the tracker into a quantifiable index for comparing data among countries. It can be used to show which countries are being more or less conservative in terms of regulations.
