• Evolution and Biology of CRISPR System: A New Era Tool for Genome Editing in Plants

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    It's an evolution of its own kind that a technology changed the interface of biology in such a short expanse of time. Merely a decade ago, scientists reported that the CRISPR-Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short Palindromic repeats-CRISPR associated) system is the part of bacteria and archea's adaptive immune system which helps in withstanding the attack against invading viruses by acquiring genetic records of invaders to facilitate robust interference upon reinfection. In this Review, we discuss the evolution of CRISPR along the time and recent advances in understanding the...
