Genome editing is a technique where DNA strands are cut, which was developed by scientists in Germany and the US a decade ago. This method allows for the editing of genes. By employing sequence specific nuclease (SSN) or site directed nuclease (SDN), this procedure allows agricultural scientists to make the required alterations to the genome.
