Read or download book entitled CRISPR and RNAi Systems written by Kamel A. Abd-Elsalam which was release on 15 March 2021, this book published by Elsevier. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: CRISPR and RNAi Systems: Nanobiotechnology Approaches to Plant Breeding and Protection presents a complete understanding of the RNAi and CRISPR/Cas9 techniques for controlling mycotoxins, fighting plant nematodes, and detecting plant pathogens. CRISPR/Cas genome editing enables efficient targeted modification in most crops, thus promising to accelerate crop improvement. CRISPR/Cas9 can be used for management of plant insects and various plant pathogens. This book is an important reference source for both plant scientists and environmental scientists who want to understand how nanobiotechnologically-based approaches are being used to create more efficient plant protection and plant breeding systems. Plants are vulnerable to pathogens including fungi, bacteria and viruses which can cause critical problems and deficits. Crop protection by plant breeding delivers a promising solution with no obvious effect on human health or the local ecosystem. Crop improvement has been the most powerful approach for producing unique crop cultivars since domestication occurred, making possible the main innovations in feeding the globe and community development. Genome editing is one of the genetic devices that can be implemented, and disease resistance is frequently cited as the most encouraging application of CRISPR/Cas9 technology in agriculture. Shows how nanotechnology is being used as the basis for new solutions for more efficient plant breeding and plant protection Outlines the major techniques and applications of both CRISPR and RNAi technologies Assesses the major challenges of escalating these technologies on a mass scale
