Taking advantage of all the expertise within PlantEd, we have responded to some open consultations that are highly relevant for plant genome editing.
EFSA consultation on SDN-1, SDN-2 and ODM
In May-June, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) had a public consultation on the applicability of the EFSA opinion on site-directed nucleases type 3 (SDN-3) for the safety assessment of plants developed using site-directed nucleases type 1 and 2 (SDN-1 and SDN-2) and oligonucleotide-directed mutagenesis (ODM). A team from PlantEd WG3, led by Prof. Jale Tosun, delivered a response that is available here below. You can read more about the consultation process and the EFSA opinion here.
EU Commission consultation on the European Green Deal / Farm to Fork Strategy
Also in May-June, the European Commission (EC) had a public consultation on the different call areas of the European Green Deal, including the Farm to Fork (F2F) strategy. A PlantEd team, led by Dr. Dennis Eriksson, delivered a response that is available here below. You can read more about the F2F strategy here.
