Plant biotechnology includeing genome editing technology and gene recombination technology has become an important technology that supports food security. This session, hosted by the Tsukuba-Plant Innovation Research Center (T-PIRC) of the University of Tsukuba, will focus on 1)Potential contribution of crop breeding to the food crisis 2) Development of Genome editing crops  in Japan and US We will introduce our efforts and 3)Global challenges and current status of Genome editing crops.
After the lecture, a panel discussion by experts will discuss the role of biotechnology crops in food security. Jointly held with JST / OPERA "Creation of innovative cutting-edge technology that opens up the future of food". Regarding participation in the presentation from the United States, the lecture will be recorded in advance and distributed on the day.
