Exploring CRISPR-Enabled Breeding Technologies to Maximize Crop Potential

Time: 1:45 pm
day: Day One


  • Improving breeding efficiency by creating new haploid inducers, through genome editing of the Poaceae- and pollen specific MATRILINEAL (MATL) gene and the conserved, essential CENTROMERIC HISTONE3 (CENH3) gene
  • Seamlessly introducing and enhancing valuable traits in crops with an efficient new HI-Edit platform
  • Reducing reliance on traditional trait introgression by using elite inducers to deliver gene editing traits
