Researchers from Kansas State University are using CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology to improve genes that control yield component traits in wheat varieties, according to a study published in CRISPR Journal. "We systematically go gene by gene, modifying them using the CRISPR-Cas9 system, and then we test to find out which changes in the wheat genome result in increased yield," said researcher Eduard Akhunov.
