Gene editing, a new breeding technique (NBT), is at the core of new-age agricultural innovations available to breeders today enabling very efficient and precise trait generation and selection without any adverse impact on the native phenotypes. These tools will also facilitate the speed of genetic gains and advance research in the delivery of products that enable “disruptive reduction” in the input costs to the farmer and “exponential gains” in nutrition and yield. Gene editing technologies have thus revolutionized the process of making DNA-level changes and the implication of this technology reaches far beyond standard molecular biology applications.
This training program on “CRISPR/Cas9 Gene Editing technologies in plants” is a comprehensive training program ideal for researchers who are looking for a balanced theoretical and hands-on introduction to gene editing. The program will cover both theory and hands-on practicals for a better understanding of the various components and stages of gene editing.
