Copenhagen Consortium for Designer Organisms (CDO)

Next Generation designer organisms

Novel and revolutionizing genome editing technologies have the power to redesign most living organisms with exquisite precision, speed and cost-effectiveness.  The technologies have immense translational potential in diverse areas of biotechnology and biomedicine including drug discovery, stem cell- and gene therapies, livestock and crops, but also give rise to serious ethical and legal implications. The vision of Copenhagen Consortium for Designer Organisms (CDO) is to transform University of Copenhagen into a leading knowledge center on precise genetic engineering of cells and organisms using nuclease-based technologies.
