NEW BREEDING TECHNIQUES: new use for CRISP/Cas9
This month hot topic on New Breeding Techniques focused mainly on a controversial new study published on “Food” describing an experiment which could lead to potentially “detect GMOs derived from genome-editing techniques”.
In Germany, CDU/CSU underlined its view that “it should not be regulated as genetically modified organisms “. In Germany as well, a new experimental use of CRISPR/Cas by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology succeeded to change genetic sequence within a chromosome. CRISPR/Cas9 has also been used by a joint US-UK research effort on pigs, goats, and cattle to create sperm with genetically enhanced traits for possible offspring.
