Contents Notes
Double-strand break repair and its application to genome engineering in plants -- Engineering meganuclease for precise plant genome modification -- High efficient genome modification by designed Zinc Finger Nuclease -- Engineered TAL effector proteins: versatile reagents for manipulating plant genomes -- Oligo-mediated targeted gene editing -- Gene targeting in crop species with effective selection systems -- Recombinase Technology for Precise Genome Engineering -- PBRM1: Developing CRISPR technology in major crop plants. This work provides an overview of the latest advances on precise genomic engineering technologies in plants. The research provided covers a wide range of topics, including recombinase and engineered nucleases-mediated targeted modification, negative/positive selection-based homologous recombination, and oligo nucleotide-mediated recombination. The text also discusses challenges and impacts of new technologies on present regulations for genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
