A promising set of biotechnological advancements that has led to meticulous and speedy production of mutated or altered genes to manipulate plants characteristics for better phenotypic expression, disease resistance and tolerance enabling high quality, processability, food security and sufficiency.
The four families of engineered nucleases- mega nucleases, zinc finger nucleases, transcription activator like effector based nucleases (TALEN) and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats CRISPR/Cas9, Cas13 had witnessed genome editing evolution and advent of second generation biotechnology evolution in agriculture.
