Genome Editing: Significant for Biotechnology

Genome editing allows to alter individual DNA components more precisely than ever before. Therefore, genome editing methods are essential tools in research and development for medicinal products, plant varieties or micro-organisms which help produce bio-based chemicals or bioenergy from renewable raw materials. The EU Commission is currently addressing the legal classification of genome editing methods. The experts from the German Central Committee on Biological Safety (ZKBS) are already one step ahead.
