• Genome Editing of Wheat Alters Spike and Grain Characteristrics

    9 days ago - By ISAAA

    Researchers from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences used CRISPR-SpCas9 to edit wheat TaAQ and TaDq, transcription factors that are vital in the evolution of the spike characteristics from wild and domesticated emmer to modern wheat cultivars. The findings are released in the Journal of Genetics and Genomics.Mutant plants with loss-of-function...
