The Needle in the DNA-stack
No Need to Look for the Needle in the DNA-stack When You Can Create One Yourself.
Many professionals in plant business are familiar with the recent introduction of a technology, called “genome editing”, which has the potential to change breeding dramatically. The most commonly used genome editor is the Crispr/CAS system. Crispr/CAS can make a mutation at specific positions in any plants’ DNA, which may result in a better trait. In nature, mutations are induced all the time. Over thousands of years this is what has created the variation upon which we build all new varieties today. But not all mutations are easily detected.
