Genome editing in cereals: current status and future potential

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Genome editing comprises a suite of technologies that are set to revolutionize genetics research and that inevitably will have huge commercial potential. Genome editing can be performed using either a site-directed nuclease that cuts the target DNA or an oligonucleotide that recombines to the target site in a way that incorporates a predetermined genetic change. This chapter discusses the application of genome editing in cereals. The current genome editing technologies are described, and potential research and breeding targets are mentioned.
