CRISPR and Plant Functional Genomics explores how to release the potential of plant functional genomics, one of the prevailing topics in plant biology and the critical technology for speed and precision crop breeding. It summarizes achievements and diverse applications using the emerging CRISPR-based genome editing technologies that produce future high-yield, disease-resistant, and climate-smart crops that fits the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations. The book also includes theories on organizing strategies for upgrading the CRISPR system to increase efficiency, avoid off-target effects, and produce transgene-free edited crops. FEATURES · Provides updated methods and applications of CRISPR/Cas-based plant genome editing technologies. · Summarizes current achievements of speed and precision crop breeding using CRISPR-based technologies. · Illustrates the current strategies to upgrade the CRISPR system. CRISPR and Plant Functional Genomics provides extensive knowledge of CRISPR-based technologies and plant functional genomics, and is an ideal reference for students, teachers, researchers, breeders, experts in the field of plant sciences, as well as agronomy and agriculture.
