What is (not) genetic engineering?

In 2012, the discovery of CRISPR/Cas technology led to a new boom in the biotechnology sector. Interested parties saw a new chance of making genetic engineering in agriculture socially acceptable in Europe. With this in mind, it is often clai-med that new methods of genetic engineering, such as CRISPR/Cas, only do what continuously happens in nature anyway. Is this really true? This booklet explains the differences between conventional breeding, “old” genetic engineering and new genetic engineering. In addition, the risks are explained and a conclusion is drawn on how to handle new genetic engineering.
