Opinion on the Regulation of Targeted Mutagenesis in Plant Breeding

Since the early 1990s techniques of induced mutagenesis targeted by biotechnological processes have been developed.
Targeted mutations obtained are of great interest for plant breeding as they can accelerate the creation of varieties of interest and therefore reduce costs associated with it.
In a regulatory landscape still confused at the European level, and in the absence of hindsight on concrete data from the field, the two French Academies in their opinion voted on July 7, 2016 call public authorities permit the development of the experiments in progress, including field experiments, and to use their results in order to prepare a regulatory framework which incorporates both biomonitoring and technical advances that these new technologies may provide.

HEALTH’ FOODS

The National Academy of Technologies of France (NATF) has been led to the conclusion – following in-depth studies on recent results due to introduction of new technologies in the complex area of health issues and their interactions with foodstuffs and feeding – that there are emerging generations of new products that underscore the importance of this sector to the French economy. NATF would strongly welcome a modification of existing rules and regulations that would enhance and accelerate their development.

Émission du 29 octobre 2016 - FUTUREMAG - ARTE

Avec leurs algorithmes qu'ils nourrissent d'immenses quantités de données, certains data scientists sont capables d'expliquer le présent et prétendent même pouvoir "prédire l'avenir". Mais peut-on se fier à ces algorithmes ? C'est notre question du futur. Ensuite, direction Stuttgart en Allemagne, où l'architecte Ferdinand Ludwig marie structures métalliques et arbres vivants pour construire des bâtiments hybrides. Enfin, nous partirtons pour les États-Unis afin de découvrir l'incroyable invention de deux étudiants : des gants qui traduisent le langage des signes.
