Genome editing and farmed animals










In January 2019, we began an inquiry into the potential development of genome editing applications in farmed animals. This was identifed as one of the two areas that requires urgent ethical scrutiny in our 2016 report, Genome editing: an ethical view (the first was genome editing in human reproduction, which resulted in a report published July 2018).
