Abstract: In order to implement The strategy of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation, the state program of genomic research and the complex scientific and technological program “Postgenomic technologies: from genetic editing to synthetic biology” are planned to be implemented in the country. Noting the obvious prospects and expediency of the development of post-genome editing technologies and high-tech industries based on them, the authors of the article highlight the barriers and risks of the full life cycle projects: the lack of sufficient number of personnel, the low level of competitiveness of domestic scientific and technological reserves, the lack of modern instrumentation, the lack of industrial partners, as well as the problems of normative and legal regulation of genetic engineering activities in the Russian Federation. Made in the framework of the study the analysis of global competitive landscape in the technology of genome editing showed that by 2018, several multinational companies have established a strong portfolio of patent documents as a tool for the conquest of leading positions in the markets generated by the post-genomic technologies.
