Realizing the potential of advances in genome editing means enabling society to benefit from the products of genome editing in food, agriculture, and industrial bioprocessing. Today’s program fosters a dialogue about the role of gene editing in our food, and the conversations we’ll need to have so that gene editing can succeed as a tool supporting sustainable food systems.

• Setting the stage for gene editing: what is gene editing and what are its most exciting applications in agriculture and food?

• What do the conversations around these new tools look like? What should they look like?
