Event description

Description

Join us for a substantive overview of gene editing innovation in Canada. Our program aims:

  • Share information on the opportunities for innovation in gene editing in both the plant and animal science fields in Canada

  • Review the current regulatory environment and ongoing industry and government efforts toward regulatory program modernization for gene editing in plant and animals in Canada.

  • Identify actions which can be taken by the animal and plant agriculture value chains and academia to further encourage a positive regulatory climate for innovation in gene editing in Canada.

Agenda:

  • Overview of global regulation of genome editing and results of Canadian plant breeders survey, Stuart Smyth, Associate Professor, U Sask.

  • Regulatory landscape in commodity plant agriculture: Current industry/government work underway to clarify the PNT approach, Ian Affleck, VP Plant Biotechnology, CropLife Canada

  • Regulatory landscape in livestock, Michael Lohuis, VP Research and Innovation, Semex

  • Regulatory landscape in horticulture, Michael Pautler, Head of Genomic Services, Platform Genetics Inc. and Vineland

  • Lunch

  • Roundtable discussions- divided into groups, either focusing on gene editing regulations for plants or gene editing regulations for animals
