Experts from the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) call for remodeling of the regulatory landscape to unleash enormous gains in productivity through gene editing in agricultural animals. They highlighted this call in the AAVMC/APLU Gene Editing in Agriculture Task Force Report.

 

According to the report, current regulatory protocols have not kept pace with technological change and must be modernized for society to avail of the benefits of gene editing. Such changes in regulations are necessary to address the food security and sustainability needs of the world population, which is projected to be 10 billion by 2050.

 

"For the promises of applying gene editing in livestock to be realized, federal regulatory approval and monitoring processes that are rooted in science and streamlined with the pace of development, as well as public acceptance of food derived from gene-edited animals, are essential," authors said in the report.
