Terminator Genes and GURT – Biological Restrictions Management

GURT: Genetic use restriction technology

Speakers: Julian ‘hds’ Finn, Oliver Moldenhauer

Five Years after the announcement of a quasi moratorium

Terminator Technology prevents plants from producing reproducible seeds, acting as a sort of copy protection technology for plants. In this talk we want to talk about the technological background, explaining the bits of genetic code that can switch reproduction on and off. Also we want to focus on the implication of this technology, the parallels to our struggles as hackers, and the resistance to its introduction.
