Gene Editing of Crops Workshop
The ability to precisely edit the complex genomes of plants has the potential to revolutionise agriculture. This CSIRO sponsored workshop is the first of its kind in Australia and will bring together world-leading experts to discuss scientific advances in the field as well as the regulatory and social aspects of using the new technology to create improved crop varieties for Australian agriculture. It is hoped that this workshop will foster new collaborations and networking opportunities and young scientists are encouraged to attend and present.
