Future of genetic engineering: ppredictions of 24 experts

In predictions of genomics experts, the future will bring to the genetic engineering:

  • huge accumulation of higher resolution data
  • integration with imaging, proteomics, metabolomics
  • major impact on evolutionary, developmental and molecular biology
  • will utilize longer sequencing reads, alternative chemistries, machine learning algorithms
  • will overcome the “one gene, one postdoc” paradigm of molecular biology
  • and will change trends in scientific methods, fluctuating between data exploration and hypothesis-driven research.
