International standards experts for biotechnology convene online
In mid-November, the standards experts on the Terminology Working Group of the ISO Technical Committee 276 Biotechnology (ISO/TC 276) discussed the status of group’s current projects as well as new topics and projects for further harmonisation activities in 2021. The Genome Editing Terminology project is in its final phase and will complete its work in early 2021. The experts therefore want to continue to push forward with its efforts to harmonise terms relating to biotechnology. Also planned are collaborations on terminology issues with other standards bodies.
