"Upon Further Review: The Obama Administration Revisits US Ag Biotech Regulations” by Tom Zinnen
Wednesday, November 11, 2015
The Obama Administration is revisiting the Coordinated Framework that regulates federal ag biotech across three federal agencies: FDA, EPA and USDA. Established in 1986, the Framework was last revised in 1992. New gene-editing techniques (eg, CRISPR) likely have helped spark this review, which will be an intriguing case study of how the Obama Administration late in its last term handles a Gordian Knot torqued with scientific, political, international and epistemological twists.
