Methods for precisely altering DNA sequences in living cells enable detailed functional analysis of genes and genetic pathways. In plants, targeted genome modification has applications ranging from understanding plant gene function to developing crop plants with new traits of value. Our group has enabled efficient methods for targeted genome modification of plants using sequence-specific nucleases.
