dc.description.abstractI wish to start 2018 by discussing gene editing which, following last year’s remarkable advances, is rumoured to continue to make a star appearance on stage. Gene editing basically rewrites DNA, disabling target genes, correcting harmful mutations and changing the activity of specific genes. This technology has already been used successfully in the agricultural industry, in that gene editing is faster and more precise than conventional genetic modification, with the added advantage of avoiding the addition of genes from other organisms [this has fuelled the backlash against GM crops]. Seedless tomatoes and gluten-free wheat are some of the results of gene editing.en_GB
