Programmable engineered nucleases, particularly CRISPR-associated nucleases - based genome editing technologies bestow promise to advance medical science, plant biology and agriculture. The genome editing technologies for plants include engineering of sequence-specific nucleases, delivery of editing reagents, generation and selection of edit events, characterization and utilization of intact plants, which further have implications for the public acceptance and regulatory approval of genome-edited plants. Over the last decade, genome editing platforms have been established and applied in a variety of plant species. The needs for better understanding of molecular and genetic mechanisms of genome editing, continuing improvements, and novel applications of genome-editing technologies in plants still require major research endeavors.
The Genome Editing in Plants specialty aims to provide a platform for technological development and application of genome editing in plant sciences and to publish high-impact, peer-reviewed original research articles, methodology articles, rapid reports, commentary articles, and review articles in the area of genome editing in plants. Articles with a primary focus on plant genetics and genomics can be directed to our specialty section 'Plant Genomics' within Frontiers in Genetics.
