Abstract

Genome editing is viewed as a breakthrough in genetic engineering. The potential scope of the procedures and the associated risks and opportunities give impetus to a new round in the public debate on genetic engineering, a debate that is characterized by profound opposition and the absence of intermediate positions, particularly in the field of agriculture. This article sketches some elements of science communication that are deemed necessary to discuss options for the further development of new technologies in a more appropriate manner and by taking into account different societal interests.
