Financial Associated Press, September 19 - recently, Academician Wang Hanzhong of the Institute of oilseeds, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences created a new plant type germplasm of dense planting resistant rape through gene editing technology. By designing specific targets and using CRISPR / cas9 gene editing system to knock out bnaa03.bp gene in spring rape, the researchers obtained editing lines with semi dwarf stem and reduced branch angle, but there was no significant difference in the number of primary branches, the number of pods per plant and the yield per plant. This study has important theoretical guiding significance for promoting the new green revolution of rape through ultra-high density and ultra-high yield.
