Open meeting about CRISPRsalmon: Should we be gene editing farmed salmon?
Is it socially and morally acceptable to use gene editing on salmon? Under what conditions should we choose to use this technology? These are sentral questions in research project CRISPsamlon. The project is lead by NTNU, together with GenØK, The Norwegian Biotechnology Advisory Board, and the Institute of Marine Research.
At this meeting, we will hear about what is available from research on gene editing of salmon in Norway today, and discuss the extent to which this technology can contribute to solving the challenges of the fish farming industry.
