Genome Editing – Chancen und Risiken

Public lecture on genome editing as part of the Studium Generale

Detlef spoke about “How common are spontaneous mutations in plants – and how do they compare to genome editing?”

Last year, the European Court of Justice decided that the EU Directive on the release of genetically modified organisms should also be applied to genome edited plants and animals. Detlef explained what mutations are all about and how the Court arrived at its decision. His slides (in German) can be accessed on figshare.
