Generation of Targeted Knockout Mutants in Arabidopsis thaliana Using CRISPR/Cas9
Authors:  Florian Hahn, Marion Eisenhut, Otho Mantegazza and Andreas P. M. Weber, date: 07/05/2017, view: 21808, Q&A: 1
The CRISPR/Cas9 system has emerged as a powerful tool for gene editing in plants and beyond. We have developed a plant vector system for targeted Cas9-dependent mutagenesis of genes in up to two different target sites in Arabidopsis thaliana ...
