New FGU video explains unintended environmental effects of plants altered by CRISPR/Cas

The Project Genetic Engineering and the Environment explains why the risks need to be examined in detail

9 June 2021 / Today, the Project Genetic Engineering and the Environment (FGU) is publishing the third explainer video on the CRISPR/Cas gene scissors. In a total of four videos, the basics of the technology, possibilities and risks are presented. In particular, applications of the gene scissors in plants are explained. With these videos, the FGU wants to support an informed dialogue in society about the new genetic engineering methods, including their potentials and risks.

Appeal to politicians

18 May 2021 / In a joint appeal, science, agricultural, beekeeping and environmental protection organisations have criticised a controversial EU Commission report on the regulation of plants and animals derived from new methods of genetic engineering (New GE, genome editing). They are warning that the report does not sufficiently address the risks to health and the environment - and may well lead to political decisions being made which harm the precautionary principle.
