Beans and Gene Editing: Breeding a Better Bean

While common beans are a versatile and healthy staple crop for millions of people in Africa and the Americas, they can be difficult to grow, store and digest.

In the future, gene editing could help scientists develop varieties that are drought-tolerant, have a longer shelf life, and are more digestible — traits that could benefit farmers and consumers alike.

Wheat and Gene Editing: Breeding for Better Bread

Wheat is a staple of diets across the world. The grain is the source of close to 20-percent of the calories consumed worldwide.

Researchers at Kansas State University are using innovative methods like gene editing to breed wheat with added benefits, including lower gluten options that could allow people with gluten sensitivities to enjoy bread and other wheat-based foods.

Rice and Gene Editing: Defending Against Rice Blast Disease

Rice is eaten by three billion people every day in every part of the world, and consumption is forecasted to increase by 100 million tons or more by 2050. While an important staple crop for much of the developing world, rice is threatened by disease, which, without a way to control, could threaten the food security of billions of people in rural areas.

Scientists believe CRISPR/Cas9 and other gene editing techniques can help save the world’s rice fields.

Cassava and Gene Editing: Eliminating Toxins in Cassava to Unlock its Potential

Cassava’s starchy roots produce food and other useful products, even in tough growing conditions. But it is notoriously difficult to breed and requires time-consuming preparation to remove naturally-occurring toxins that can cause cyanide poisoning.

Genome editing promises to make this hardy crop safer and more valuable.
