CRISPR and Other Emerging GE Technologies in Plants and Trees

The biotech industry is pushing for plants and animals manipulated with new methods such as CRISPR, to be released and marketed without being subjected to regulations for genetically engineered organisms. However, legal dossiers published in 2015 show that these methods should clearly be considered to be genetic engineering, and plants and animals produced in this way should therefore also have to undergo risk assessment and labeling.
