President Obama announced last July that the United Stated Government would be revising the decades old guidelines on how biotech products, including genetically modified crops and animals, would be regulated by the FDA, USDA, and EPA.  To assist this process, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has formed a committee composed of representatives from industry and academia to predict the types of biotechnologies that could be possible in the next decade.  CRISPR/Cas9 technology will be at the forefront of this discussion with the rulings of the committee released in December 2016.
