Targeted Modification of Rice Genome with Base EditingNovember 23, 2022
Based editing is one of the approaches used for genome editing to generate single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) in genomes. The protocol presented is specifically for targeted adenine to guanine substitution in rice using an adenine base editor. A detailed design of the sgRNA, CRISPR plasmid construction, rapid genetic transformation of rice, and genotyping of editing events are discussed. It can also be used for cytosine base editing.
