RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. & DES MOINES, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Precision BioSciences, Inc., and DuPont Pioneer today announced that The Plant Journal has published an article detailing collaborative cutting-edge research to generate male-sterile corn plants. Researchers at Pioneer used Precision’s advanced genome engineering technology, called DNE, to “knockout” or disable the function of the ms26 gene in corn. Knocking out this gene has enabled Pioneer to produce corn plants that are male-sterile, a powerful tool for hybrid seed production.
