Bio-innovations genome-edited crops for climate-smart food systems
New genome-editing (GEd) technologies, including CRISPR-based tools designed to edit genes, will play a critical role in addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation in agriculture. GEd allows researchers to rapidly develop climate-resilient and climate-adaptable crop varieties tailored to low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
