The Impact of Gene Technology in Animal Agriculture and Food ProductionAugust 18, 2021
The Asia Oceania Regional Animal Biotech Virtual Workshop will tackle science and opportunities of animal biotechnology for food and agriculture on August 31 to September 1, 2021, 11:30-14:30 Manila time via Zoom. The registration is now open for interested participants.
By joining the workshop, participants will:
- be informed on current innovations in animal biotechnology;
- gain increased awareness on the benefits and opportunities in animal research targeting animal welfare and other applications in food and agriculture; and
- be equipped to make contributions to science-based policies in support of the utilization of animal biotechnology to enhance food security and agricultural sustainability.
International experts will serve as resource speakers in the workshop. Sessions in the first day of the workshop will be focused on the science and opportunities in poultry, aquaculture, swine, and cattle; as well as the policy considerations for biotech animals and the existing policies in selected countries. The second day sessions will tackle food, feed, and environmental safety assessments.
