With Prof. Agnès Ricroch, AgroParisTech and Penn State University In 1990, the European Union adopted its first regulatory framework on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). As a result, commercial cultivation of GM crops is minimal in the EU. Nonetheless, the EU remains a major importer of soybean, corn, and rapeseed GM products. New genome-editing technologies have emerged as a way to meet agricultural challenges and present different regulatory issues.
