Plant genome editing: INRA defines its strategy

Plant genome editing is a technology that attracts much social and regulatory debate: INRA has defined a strategy for the use of these new techniques to acquire new knowledge and in plant breeding. The principles underlying this strategy are in line with the Institute’s values and with its ambition to contribute to environmental, social and economic progress. INRA developed its strategy based on the recommendations of an opinion issued by the INRA-CIRAD-IFREMER Joint Consultative Ethics Committee in the spring of 2018, along with the opinion of its Scientific Advisory Board, issued last September.
