What is CRISPR/Cas9? CRISPR/Cas9 stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats/CRISPR-associated protein 9. It is a natural defense mechanism used by bacteria to protect themselves against viral infections. CRISPR/Cas9 is a revolutionary gene editing technology that has transformed the field of genetics and biomedical research. It enables researchers to manipulate and edit DNA sequences […]
Nitrogen is a crucial nutrient required in the growth and the improvement of the plant; it is also a key determinant of the photosynthetic capacity of the plant and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the fundamental source of energy. N and C metabolism are closely linked together. (Zhong et al., 2018) has stated that the […]
Embryo culture is also known as embryogenesis/ embryo rescue. Growth of a species during its embryonic stage in artificial culture medium (in-vitro) with aseptic conditions. First in 18th century by Charles bonnet in Phaseolus and Fagopyrum First successful embryo culture inside laboratory performed in 1904, by Hanning The fusion of anther(pollen) and ovary (ovule).
