    Abstract
    Genome editing technology has emerged as a multifaceted strategy that instantaneously popularised the mechanism to modify the genetic constitution of an organism. The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat and CRISPR-associated protein-based genome editing approach has huge potential for efficacious editing of genomes of numerous organisms. This framework has demonstrated to be more economical in contrast to mega-nucleases, zinc-finger nucleases , and transcription activator-like effector nucleases for its flexibility, versatility, and potency. The advent of...
