CRISPR, genome editing and promotion in plant science

CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) are specialized stretches of DNA. CRISPRs genome editing has become one of the most popular ways and allows researchers to easily alter DNA sequences and modify gene function.

This Special issue will discuss the recent advances in CRISPR, genome editing, Biogenesis, RNA interference (RNAi), Genome engineering, RNA editing, disease models, gene drive, CRISPR in Cancer, gene function, genetic depletion, CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing.
