WG 93rd Annual Meeting – Genomics Workshop to Discuss New Gene-Editing Technology

One of the featured workshops at the Western Growers Annual Meeting will focus on genomics. Advances in genomics have the ability to transform the ag world as we know it and significantly affect how we live, work and run our businesses.

Juan Enriquez will lead this workshop with a panel of members and other industry experts. Enriquez is a leading authority on the uses and benefits of genomic research. He is also an active investor in early-stage life science companies, and the co-founder of Synthetic Genomics. He will discuss topics such as how newer gene-editing technologies differ from traditional GMOs, and what that difference means to the growers and families affected.
