CRISPR Crops: Food, Farms, and the Shape of Plants to Come

Gene editing is revolutionizing agriculture by changing how we bioengineer, produce, and consume food. But how is this technology being implemented, and what does this mean for farmers, consumers, and society at large?

In a recent Wonderfest event, PMB PhD candidate and researcher Evan Groover offered participants a holistic journey through the history of plant breeding to understand how cutting-edge technology—and CRISPR gene editing, in particular—is being used to meet the demands of a growing human population and a warming world.
