• What can gene editing technology do for traditional (non-GMO) plant breeding? What crops are being targeted and why?
• The recent ECJ ruling that gene-edited plants should be regulated under the same rules as GMO is in stark contrast to the USDA’s position. What does this ruling mean for the future of the gene editing industry in Europe? Which global markets are set to benefit?
• With no current route to market for gene-edited plants, what will the supply chain look like? Will SME’s or Big Agribusiness take the lead in developing and bringing gene-edited crops to market? And how are VCs approaching the investment opportunity?
