Construction of a Single Transcriptional Unit for Expression of Cas9 and Single-guide RNAs for Genome Editing in Plants
Authors:  Xu Tang, Zhaohui Zhong, Xuelian Zheng and Yong Zhang, date: 09/05/2017, view: 2824, Q&A: 0
The CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)-associated protein9 (Cas9) is a simple and efficient tool for genome editing in many organisms including plant and crop species. The sgRNAs of the CRISPR/Cas9 system are ...
