Applications for Gene Editing — Livestock

Learn about the applications of gene editing in livestock and the future of this field in our latest episode of Teach Me in 10.

Alison Van Eenennaam, professor of cooperative extension – animal genomics and biotechnology from the University of California, Davis talks about how genetic variants are introduced into livestock DNA using tools like CRISPR.

From cattle to chickens, this technology could enable the creation of livestock resistant to diseases, capable of withstanding extreme conditions and even producing offspring of desired sexes. Join us as we explore how genome editing not only safeguards livestock from environmental challenges but also enhances efficiency, sustainability and animal welfare in milk, meat and egg production.
