Gene Drive Organisms: There is No One Size Fits AllMay 18, 2022
ISAAA Inc., the ISAAA network of Biotechnology Information Centers, and the Outreach Network for Gene Drive Research will hold the webinar Gene Drive Organisms: There is No One Size Fits All on May 19, 2022, at 2:00 PM (GMT+8). The registration is now open.
The discussions will answer the following questions:
- Why are gene drives not all the same?
- How can we take into account the possible diversity of gene drive organisms in policy development?
The online event is the first of three webinars organized to raise public awareness about gene drive technology along with its applications, benefits, risks, and impact. The first webinar will provide participants with an introduction to different types of gene drives and how guidance and frameworks are vital to adapt to these differences. Dr. Alekos Simoni of Polo d'Innovazione di Genomica and Dr. Owain Edwards of CSIRO Land & Water will serve as resource speakers. Dr. Guan-Hong Wang from the Chinese Academy of Science will moderate the discussions.
