Event Description

Full Description:
QAAFI Science Seminar
Prof. Kan Wang, Director of Center for Plant Transformation, Iowa State University

TALENs and CRISPR/Cas9 are powerful genome editing systems that have been used to generate targeted changes for direct modification of endogenous genes in an increasing number of plant species. Researchers at Iowa State University Crop Bioengineering Consortium have been engaged actively in the development of a public sector genome editing platform. Here an Agrobacterium-delivered CRISPR/Cas9 system for high-frequency targeted mutagenesis was evaluated for its mutagenesis frequency and inheritability using maize genes.
