About The Program

One of the great challenges of the 21st century is to ensure sufficient, nutritionally-rich and sustainable food (crop and livestock) production especially in the changing climate scenario

How will modern technologies such as genome editing change biotechnology aspects and their applications in agriculture?

MISSION

To prepare the future generation of scientists with the training to generate, improve, assess and regulate the wide range of agricultural products derived from genome editing technologies

ACTION PLAN

  • Training

    Train our students to translate their bench science into practical genome editing approaches for food security and environmental sustainability

  • Partnerships

    Partner with academic institutions, government agencies, regulatory bodies and industrial partners in order to develop professional and social skills in our trainees for careers in industry, the public sector and academia
