Abstract:

To achieve global food security, rising agricultural productivity through modern breeding strategies is of prime interest. A variety of biotic and abiotic stresses influences both productivity and crop quality, and it is essential for growing crops with improved adaptability, high productivity and resistance to these biotic/abiotic stresses. Availability of genome sequences helps to improve crop production by using different biotechnological tools. It is a genome editing method that can be accomplished for successful and efficient selective modification of an organism by using modern biotechnology techniques. Plant scientists to manipulate targeted genes in crop plants by utilizing genome editing tools, like transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), and CRISPR/Cas9. Genome-editing methods have been used to classify gene functions and boost agricultural characteristics in a wide range of plant species.
