Responsible research and innovation: Comparing  gene-editing livestock and plant

BSc thesis carried out for a project running on gene-editing livestock and whether or not this is acceptable for Dutch society. In interviews with plant and animal scientists we noticed big differences in how acceptable applications are for plants and animals. What are these differences, and why are these important for thinking about applications? The literature review will consist of both natural and social science papers, therefore a multidisciplinary background is preferred.
