STOA Report on Genome-edited Crops and 21st Century Food System ChallengesAugust 10, 2022
An in-depth analysis on new breeding tools and their potential role for the EU food system has been published by the European Parliamentary Research Service and its Scientific Foresight Unit (STOA). The report explains the tools and technology, how they work, how they can be used, and the kind of regulatory challenges related to them.
The report, Genome-edited Crops and 21st Century Food System Challenges, explains the new breeding tools as well as the genetic modifications (mutations) that can be introduced by using these tools in comparison to conventional breeding and the spontaneous genetic alterations that occur in crops. It also includes the regulatory developments around the world with a growing number of countries exempting conventional-like plants resulting from those new breeding tools from restrictive biotech regulations.
