Gene editing in tomato, potato, and wheat


ASTA worked with the European seed association Euroseeds to develop and distribute several mini-videos illustrating the benefits of gene editing in tomatoes, potatoes, grapes, and wheat.

Genome editing makes wheat crops more sustainable
from Silvia Lofrese on Vimeo

Genome editing techniques can make agriculture more sustainable by adapting traits to make crops more resistant to pests and diseases, to heatwaves and drought while, at the same time, reducing their need for chemical input and consumption of energy and resources (e.g. water) needed for the production. Here is a case study on wheat crops.
