This webinar will cover the basic techniques and terminology involved in the genetic improvement of plants, from traditional breeding to genetic engineering and genome editing. You will learn about how the history of crop domestication relates to plant breeding today, and some of the biotechnological tools that are being used to further improve our crops. Real-world examples will be used that illustrate the scientific, social, and practical similarities and differences between these different techniques.
