Plant biology focuses on fundamental aspects of how plants function as organisms and interact with the environment.
Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9) is the most popular system for plant genome editing. With its robust efficiency, it is considered as the default platform to develop multiple tools for plant genome engineering. However, the system strictly requires a canonical NGG ...Learn More
