65. Transforming food systems through genome editing – animal ethics and citizen engagement

Improved Growth and High Inheritance of Melanocortin-4 Receptor (mc4r) Mutation in CRISPR/Cas-9 Gene-Edited Channel Catfish, Ictalurus punctatus.

TLDR
With a high mutation rate and inheritance of the mutation as well as improved growth, the use of gene-edited MC4R channel catfish appears to be beneficial for application on commercial farms.

The Functional Role of Long Non-Coding RNA in Myogenesis and Skeletal Muscle Atrophy

TLDR
Recent knowledge on the regulatory roles of lncRNAs in skeletal muscle atrophy is reviewed and the issues and possibilities of targeting lnc RNAs as a treatment for skeletal Muscle wasting disorders in humans are discussed.

CRISPR/Cas Genome Editing—Can It Become a Game Changer in Future Fisheries Sector?

TLDR
There is still a way to go before the CRISPR/Cas technology revolutionizes and becomes viable in commercial Aquaculture as the new breeding technology for aquaculture-important traits and species, and there are several technical challenges and regulatory and public issues concerning the applications.
