    CRISPR - Cas9 for gene editing has long been considered revolutionary in minimizing time frame to improve plant genetics and crop breeding. By using CRISPR tools we can improve desired traits, such as yield, plant height, gene expression, gene silencing, and disease tolerance. Flowering in plants is regulated by complex network of gene-controlled factors. This paper p ...
