Who should attend?
- Scientists who are using gene editing or advanced molecular genetics tools to improve agriculture in India
- Science communicators who are using new tools and approaches to communicate about agriculture and biotechnologies
- Regulators and other stakeholders interested in advancing gene editing in India
- Women and early career professionals are strongly encouraged to attend
- The Science of Gene Editing. What is gene editing and how does it compare to other breeding methods, including genetic engineering? What are the latest developments? What is in the pipeline in India and elsewhere?
