ISAAA Launches Open-access Resources on Genome EditingJuly 22, 2020
ISAAA monitors the advances in genome editing and its implications in food and agriculture. Articles based on peer-reviewed journals are published every week in the Crop Biotech Update and are summarized in the Genome Editing Resource. This page is available for public use, aiming to stimulate informed discourses and decision making regarding the technology.
Genome editing is one of the new breeding techniques that allow scientists to improve the characteristics of living organisms, including plants, animals, and bacteria. The technologies used for genome editing work like scissors, cutting the DNA in a specific location, then remove, add, or replace the DNA where the cut was made. The most used technologies in genome editing are clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), and homing endonucleases or meganucleases.
For researchers who wish to publish their findings in the Crop Biotech Update, kindly send the summary of the findings to email@example.com.
