• Precise Base Editing of Acetolactate Synthase Genes Confers Herbicide Resistance in Maize

    8 monthes ago - By ISAAA

    Researchers from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and other institutions reported precise based editing of maize genes using CRISPR-Cas9, leading to development of sulfonylurea herbicide resistance. The results are published in The Crop Journal.A CRISPR-Cas9 nickase-cytidine deaminase fused with uracil DNA glycosylase inhibitor was used for...
