Exploiting CRISPR to increase crop yields [Registered]

Researchers at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) in New York provide a compelling demonstration of the power of gene editing to rapidly improve yield traits in crop breeding. Using tomato as an example, they have mobilized CRISPR/Cas9 technology to rapidly generate variants of the plant that display a broad continuum of three separate, agriculturally important traits: fruit size, branching architecture and overall plant shape…
