CRISPR-Cas9 Used to Reduce Seed Dormancy in Rice

13:00 EDT 30 Oct 2019 | ISAAA

Genome editing has been useful in finding out the functions of specific genes and generating important mutations in crops. Thus, scientists from Hankyong National University in South Korea used CRISPR-Cas9 to develop rice lines with reduced seed dormancy. Their findings are published in Plant Biotechnology Reports.Thirty-three edited lines out of 5...
