Watch Sarah Fletcher talking about how we use genome editors at The Roslin Institute to attempt to generate resistance to disease in pigs. Sarah explains: “I’ll not be going into huge detail about how genome editors work but will focus the introduction more about why we might want to use genome editors rather than selective breeding  and on their potential uses in increasing productivity of livestock, improving animal welfare, producing animals that are resistant to diseases. The final focus will be on the PRRS-resistant pig story.” pig
