Previously, genetic resources (eg genes) could only be shared by transfer of physical specimens. New technological developments now allow genetic information to be coded, stored, transferred and downloaded digitally. This briefing examines the benefit-sharing implications of these technological developments.

New gene editing techniques have made it possible to build human-designed, synthetic gene drives where a genetically engineered trait can be deliberately spread through an entire population by releasing only a few engineered organisms. Proposals are rapidly advancing to use synthetic gene drives to alter wild and domestic populations, which may impact ecosystems and biodiversity...
Biosynthesis refers to tweaking existing biological systems or constructing entirely new biological parts, devices and systems. The biosynthesis industry aims to turn organisms into “living factories” to produce high-value substances like those found in vanilla, stevia, silk or shea butter. AI (artificial intelligence) and robotics have increased the ability to develop new biosynthetic products. There...
