    The climate is changing, demand for food is growing and pesticides are increasingly frowned upon. In addition to adaptations in our cultivation practices, robust, high-yielding crops are therefore also in demand. Conventional plant breeding will take decades to achieve these goals, however. Genome editing methods could offer us a way out. The conference will see experts provide information and discuss the pros and cons of this biomolecular technology and its influence on consumption.
