Free seminar open to the public, on 04/06 at 4.30 p.m. The seminar can be seen online, live or on demand, by registering here.
Together with Vittoria Brambilla – University of Milan – we will talk about the use of genetics and molecular biology in agricultural species. In particular, we will find out more about the new CRISPR technique, which allows scientific research knowledge to be included in the genetic improvement of agricultural species in a very short time span. Plants improved with CRISPR show very subtle changes at a DNA level, very similar to those that can be found in nature, but can have very advantageous characteristics for farmers. For these reasons CRISPR has been received positively by both the public and national associations working in the sector. However, the future of CRISPR in agriculture is currently uncertain due to European regulations that put it on the same level as GMOs.
