The Genetic Literacy Project has developed two interactive tools that track
and index gene editing and gene editing regulations worldwide, helping to
illuminate how regulations can encourage or hinder innovation.
The Global Gene Editing Regulation Tracker and Index sum up gene editing
regulations in the field of agriculture, medicine, and gene drives per
country, giving a picture of each country's regulatory timeline, and
indicate which products and therapies are in the pipeline. Another important
feature of the tracker is the information on the reaction of gene editing
critics, as well as the scientist and public interest groups that are
pushing to give the technology a chance.
The Gene Editing Regulatory Index, developed by GLP in partnership with
Consumer Choice Center, serves as a companion tool with the tracker as it
turns the information from the tracker into a quantifiable index for
comparing data among countries. It can be used to show which countries are
being more or less conservative in terms of regulations.
