About this book


This work provides an overview of the latest advances on precise genomic engineering technologies in plants. The research provided covers a wide range of topics, including recombinase and engineered nucleases-mediated targeted modification, negative/positive selection-based homologous recombination, and oligo nucleotide-mediated recombination. The text also discusses challenges and impacts of new technologies on present regulations for genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
