Crop Biotechnology: Could Genome Editing Revolutionise Agriculture?

In this webinar, Technology Analyst Dr Michael Dent will present an overview of IDTechEx's recent research into the crop biotechnology industry, focusing on the potential of genome editing to revolutionise the field.
The webinar will compare genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR, TALENs and ZFNs, with more established genetic modification techniques, providing technical, consumer and market insights. It will also discuss the challenges faced by genetic modification techniques and how genome editing technologies could overcome them.
The webinar will include:
  • Introduction to genome editing technologies in agriculture
  • Introduction to established crop biotechnology techniques, focusing on transgenic organisms
  • Overview of the challenges facing global agriculture
  • A discussion of the market outlook for crop biotechnology
This webinar shares some of the research from the brand new IDTechEx report, "Genetic Technologies in Agriculture 2020-2030".
