Posted: September 15, 2014

Dr. Yinong Yang presented a talk titled “Targeted Mutation and Precise Genome Editing in Plants with CRISPR/Cas9 System” at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Society of Plant Biologists held July 12-16, 2014, in Portland, Oregon.

The CRISPR/Cas9 system is emerging as a powerful genome editing tool with broad applications in basic biology research, gene therapy, and crop improvement. Over a year ago Yang Lab published one of the first papers demonstrating genome editing and targeted gene mutation in plants using the CRISPR/Cas9 system.
