CRISPRized Horticulture Crops: Genome Modified Plants and Microbes in Food and Agriculture

Editat de Kamel A Abd-Elsalam, Aftab Ahmad, Baohong Zhang
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 21 mar 2024
CRISPRized Horticultural Crops: Genome Modified Plants and Microbes in Food and Agriculture summarizes applications of CRISPR/Cas systems and its advanced variants e.g., CRISPR/Cpf1, base editing and prime editing, for precise editing of horticultural crops. The book discusses vector transformations methods, epi-genome, deep learning, synthetic biology, and precision breeding for improving yield and quality related attributes in horticultural crops. With coverage of the relevant technologies and their applications, the book also includes bioinformatics and large-scale databases and their potential application in fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants and sections on regulatory concerns related to CRISPR edited crops.
Horticultural crops, including fruit, vegetable and ornamental plants are an important component of agriculture production systems and play an important role in sustaining human life. 

  • Reviews CRISPR for editing horticultural crops
  • Discusses vector transformation methods, epigenome, deep learning, synthetic biology and precision breeding
  • Includes bioinformatics and large-scale databases
  • Contributes engineering approaches for crop improvement programs
