Seed World Innovation Webinar Series: Enabling Innovation with CRISPR Gene Editing

The food and agriculture industry is using CRISPR to tap the natural diversity of plants to increase the sustainability of crop production to develop tastier, healthier foods for consumers. Matt Begemann, a gene editing expert, discussed how CRISPR can be leveraged in your R&D program. We also discussed how to accelerate development timelines and differentiate your products through the application of CRISPR.
