Soil & Health NZ Webinar: What are GMOs, and are they really changing because of new gene techniques?

23 January 2024 | 7:30 – 8:30 pm

Join us for an educational webinar hosted by Soil & Health NZ, where we delve into the world of genetic engineering with Professor Jack Heinemann, an expert from the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury.

The New Zealand government feels our biosafety rules are leaving NZ behind and believes GMOs are now safer than ever. Professor Heinemann is a genetic engineer with over 30 years of experience. He will share his knowledge of genetic engineering, focusing on the latest advancements. He’ll discuss what risks we should consider with any biotechnology and what makes the latest tools worthy of regulations.
