The CRISPR /CASv9 Method developed by Professor Emmanuelle Charpentier and Professor Jennifer Doudna was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2020. It offers completely new potential in plant cultivation and animal rearing and can therefore contribute to the food supply of the world population. For example, this method can be used to strengthen the immune system of plants and animals. The method is simple, efficient and flexible to use, but its approval is regulated very differently internationally.
During our World Food Convention we want to dive into the important topic of Genome Editing and its new potential in plant cultivation and animal rearing. We would like to discuss how the CRISPR /CASv9 Method can contribute to the food supply of the world population and what regulatory requirements are in place worldwide.
The Panel Genome Editing will take place on June 24th at 3:30 p.m. CET

By Sascha Karberg For the first time worldwide, two patients, one of them in Regensburg, have been cured of their severe genetic blood diseases using the gene scissors “CRISPR/Cas9”. This became known this week. One can now go and –
Multiple genes simultaneously altered in immune cells For the first time, researchers have used the gene scissors CRISPR/Cas9 (Crispr for short) to treat cancer patients. A group of researchers led by Carl June from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia
Gene snipping was possible even before the Crispr/Cas9 gene scissors. But it made everything easier By Sascha Karberg This Nobel Prize came as no surprise to anyone who knows anything about the subject. For years, the scientific community worldwide has
The gene scissors have now won a Nobel Prize. However, its sensible use is still being fought against in this country
