Could genetic biocontrol change how we manage aquatic invasive species? Find out at our next webinar in just ONE WEEK: Using Genetic Engineering to Combat Invasive Species featuring Dr. Michael Smanski
About this webinar: Recently developed tools for Precise Genome Engineering have ushered in a number of novel proof-of-concept technologies for pest control. Termed ‘genetic biocontrol’, these approaches allow researchers to essentially convert the pest organism into a pesticide. Released genetically engineered biocontrol agents would spread deleterious genes into the pest population, leading to a local eradication. This talk will introduce several types of genetic biocontrol, describe how they work, and give a status update on technology development efforts. A question-answer period will allow attendees to learn more about this promising and possibly transformative class of technologies.
