CRISPR and the Food We Eat
CRISPR technology is changing the medical treatments for genetic disorders but gene editing will also change the food we buy in grocery stores. Topics include an introduction to DNA and gene editing technology, feeding a growing world population, developing new crop varieties, creating a GMO, food labeling, and government regulation. Will scientists using gene editing make the same mistakes as they did with GMO? The course requires participants to view online video, articles and TED talks prior to class, followed by a Zoom conference to discuss controversial topics. The instructor has 40 years experience in leading plant biotechnology research.
