AMES, Iowa (AP) - Bioengineering representatives from various institutions are expected to attend a workshop at Iowa State University.

The school's new Crop Bioengineering Consortium will hold the two-day workshop beginning Monday at the Gateway Conference Center. Three sessions are scheduled.

The workshop will highlight gene editing technology aimed at improving crops for food and biorenewables. The workshop will also offer perspectives on regulation, technology access and other issues surrounding the process of changing specific genes in a DNA sequence.

The consortium was founded in June as one of the university's presidential initiatives for interdisciplinary research.
