Researchers from Hankyong National University, South Korea, edited three rice genes (OsF3′H, OsDFR and OsLDOX) involved in anthocyanin production. Modifying a trait using CRISPR-Cas9 mutagenesis has been proven to provide advantages in identifying gene function and crop improvement. The results of the gene editing are published in Plant Biotechnology Reports.

An international cross-institutional research group has identified the mechanism by which liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha) asexually reproduces through the development of clonal progenies (gemmae). The team discovered the gene ‘KARAPPO', which is essential for initiating gemma development in liverwort. The findings of this research are expected to contribute fundamental knowledge towards technological developments to boost agricultural and horticultural cultivation efficiency.
