Gene editing plants and animals to fight climate change

 — 23 septembre 2020
Editing the genes of plants and animals could help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and other sectors, according to a new report highlighting the possible uses of the technology.

For too long the potential of biotechnology to address climate change has taken a back seat to engineering, chemistry and energy. But new advances in gene editing could make farming more efficient and take carbon out of the atmosphere.

By the numbers: The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation, a think tank for science and technology policy, concludes in a recent report that gene-editing technologies like CRISPR could lead to a 50% improvement in agricultural productivity by 2050.
