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

12:00 EST 15 Jan 2020 | 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...
