RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. & MISHMAR HASHIVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Danziger Innovations Ltd. and Precision BioSciences, Inc., today announced that they have successfully generated site-specific genome modifications in petunia and jasmine tobacco by combining Precision’s Directed Nuclease Editor (DNE) gene editing technology with Danziger’s MemoGene gene delivery system. This successful research effort was aimed at genetic control of flower color but researchers at Precision and Danziger believe that the approach can be used more broadly to address genome engineering challenges in plants that are recalcitrant to existing transformation methods without requiring the insertion of foreign DNA into the plant genome.
