3rd Precision CRISPR & NBT AgBio Congress

Optimize the Discovery of Functional Traits & Engineer Next Generation Ag-Products that Improve Yield, Productivity & Tolerance

Securing sustainable food security for the global population has never been so critical. Join fellow agbiotech and R&D experts as they harness CRISPR, alongside other NBT’s to secure a more sustainable agricultural future and deliver improved seeds, crops and livestock that boosts tolerance, productivity and yield

Developed with industry experts from the likes of Acceligen, Cibus, Syngenta, USDA and leading professors from top agricultural institutes; this year’s 3rd Precision CRISPR & NBT AgBio Congress aims to explicate how we are working to produce more from less through functional trait genomics and novel breeding innovation.

The Role of Heirloom Crops vs Genetic Engineering in Future Food Systems

The food system is a tale of two halves today. On one side, consumers want to go back in time to eat locally-sourced, clean, simple, organic and heirloom varieties of certain fruits and vegetables. And on the other, technological developments are making genetic engineering more effective than ever. We ask experts which approach will define the future of food.

Should You Be Using CRISPR for Your Ag Business?

Management teams in plant genetics companies have likely been asked by at least one well-intending board member: “Are we using CRISPR? I sat next to this guy on the plane and he said that CRISPR will change everything," writes Vonnie Estes.
