Podcast: Gene editing and public acceptance — Agricultural economist Brandon McFadden on regulatory differences in agriculture and medicine for using CRISPR

Brandon McFadden.
Gene editing with CRISPR/Cas, TALEN or other tools allows scientists to make directed and precise changes in DNA.  The technologies promise to transform agriculture and medicine.

Brandon McFadden is an agricultural economist at the University of Delaware who specializes in understanding the intersection between food, agriculture and human behavior. We have a conversation about gene editing, public sentiment, and how it varies between agriculture and medicine.
