Genome-edited crops: regulatory framework proposal in Nature Genetics

A proposed regulatory framework for genome-edited crops

Huang, S., Weigel, D., Beachy, R. N., and Li, J.-y.

Crop breeding is being revolutionized by rapid progress in DNA sequencing and targeted alteration of DNA sequences by genome editing. Here we propose a regulatory framework for precision breeding with ‘genome-edited crops’ (GECs) so that society can fully benefit from the latest advances in plant genetics and genomics.
