Efficient and customizable genome editing tool
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 the basis for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology. This efficient and customizable method has the ability to target multiple genes simultaneously, an advantage that sets it apart from other gene editing tools. In 2012, Jennifer Doudna, an American biochemist based at the University of California

Together We Can Help End Hunger and Improve the Environment, With the birth of agriculture, human beings flourished. Today, the intimate balance between people, planet and plants is threatened. We must find a way to make sure we have enough food and energy for people while preserving a livable, sustainable environment now and for the future. At the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center we work, long-term damage to the environment and the planet. Like the Moonshot in the 1960s, or a Mars shot

https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(farm-press)-agricultural-technology-absolutely-essential-to-meet-world-food-needs
With total food demand expected to increase by 70 percent in just under 40 years, and food prices forecast to rise as much as 100 percent, there is “enormous opportunity” for innovation and investment in agricultural technology, according to a recently published white paper from the Kauffman Foundation and the Danforth Center.
