Gene editing for the primary industries
2019: Scenarios and summary paper exploring the potential use of gene editing for the primary industries in Aotearoa.
To help consider the implications of using gene editing for primary production in New Zealand, five scenarios in which gene editing might be used are highlighted, and the implications that might arise are identified. These case studies consider:
- uses of the technology within and outside the human food chain
- use of the technology in agricultural plants and animals
- what the potential harms and benefits are.
