Scientists from the Institute of Molecular Plant Biology in Switzerland have utilized genome editing to accelerate breeding for modified starch in cassava. They used CRISPR-Cas9 to edit genes controlling flowering (FLOWERING LOCUS T) and amylose production (GBSS and PTST1). Results showed reduced or eliminated amylose content in cassava starch.
