In the first part of today’s podcast Dr. Kayleen Schreiber and Jon Entine discuss the latest addition to the Genetic Literacy Project, a website called the Global Gene Editing Regulation Tracker. This online resource provides instant access to the current state of gene editing approvals, along with information on gene drives and other important regulatory updates. In the second half Dr. Bernadine Strik remembers her colleague Dr. Chad Finn. Dr. Finn contributed in massive ways to plant breeding, particularly in the development of new berry varieties for the Pacific Northwest. He also shared a tremendous interest in service to his community and to the scientific community, and was invested in students and the development of others. He was everyone’s friend. He left us suddenly and unexpectedly and leaves a palpable gap in our community. Dr. Strik memorializes his contributions and character. The Global Gene Editing Tracker can be found here.
