CRISPR AgBio Congress Europe

CRISPR AgBio Europe 2017 is the only end to end meeting bringing together
Agri biotechs and academia to advance the application of CRISPR gene editing
in agriculture R&D. Learn about the CRISPR technology advancements in plants,
using CRISPR as a valuable trait discovery tool and commercialisation of CRISPR
edited plants and crops.

Discover how the industry is developing CRISPR technology as a novel breeding
technique to enhance yield by advancing desired trait selection, and
accurately engineer disease and drought resistant traits in crops. Uncover the
current EU regulatory perspective and guidelines for the commercialisation of
CRISPR generated plants and crops, and how the industry are navigating the
complex regulatory environment.

Learn how academia and industry are optimising CRISPR workflows to enhance
specificity, efficiency and delivery in a range of plants and crops. Hear about
how this breakthrough technology is transforming functional genomics in basic
research and industry applications to advance your understanding of genetic
traits, and how they can be manipulated for improved agricultural productivity
and yields.

Realise the potential of CRISPR as a novel breeding technique by learning
from key industry leaders from Europe and around the world, who are driving
the field forward through the discovery and development of CRISPR-enhanced
plants and crops that help attain sustainable yields that meet growing demands.
