Blake Meyers of the Danforth Center has been using CRISPR to introduce single-nucleotide changes in plant microRNAs in Arabidopsis. 
(Biotechniques) Plants in the CRISPR, Blake Meyers of the Danforth Center has been using CRISPR to introduce single-nucleotide changes in plant microRNAs in Arabidopsis. “It gives us a very powerful tool to make very small changes, kind of what we might think of as subtle changes that can have dramatic effects on processing,” he says. He’s also been collaborating on a project with Yang where, do with single-nucleotide precision. “With CRISPR-generated mutants, we can get anywhere from

CRISPR: Using precision technology to benefit people and the planet, Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, or CRISPR is the hallmark of a bacterial defense system that forms, in the science community. CRISPR genome editing technology is powerful in the sense it allows, around the globe face every day. CRISPR can also be used to develop crops with longer shelf life and more nutritional value. The publication Engadget claimed CRISPR is a tool that could
