Plant Genome Editing Database Consolidates Info on CRISPR-Cas Generated PlantsMarch 6, 2019
The US National Science Foundation developed the Plant Genome Editing Database hosted by the Boyce Thompson Institute to serve as a central repository information about CRISPR-Cas-generated mutants in plant species that are being developed or have been reported in the literature. NSF invites researchers who have developed and characterized genome-edited plant mutants to submit their information to the database. To date, the database contains information about 400 tomato mutant lines targeting ~150 candidate genes linked with host immunity to different pathogens.
