(The Scientist) Improving Crops with RNAi
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(the-scientist)-improving-crops-with-rnai
Nigel Taylor, senior research scientist and Narender Nehra, director of regulatory affairs in the Institute for International Crop Improvement (IICI) co-authored this article about how RNA interference is proving to be a valuable tool for agriculture, allowing researchers to develop pathogen-resistant and more-nutritious crops.
(The Scientist) Improving Crops with RNAi, RNA interference (RNAi) is the process by which small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) bind to and cleave complementary mRNA sequences, inhibiting their translation into proteins. RNAi is a particularly potent tool for fighting common crop pathogens. By simply integrating virus- or bacteria-derived DNA sequences into the plant genome, pathogen-targeting siRNAs can be produced, triggering the endogenous RNAi mechanisms to target and degrade homologous
