Pathogens are the major limiting factors in coffee productions. Approximately 26% of the global annual coffee production is lost due to diseases, threatening the income of nearly 125 million people worldwide. Therefore, reducing coffee yield losses by improving the resistance of coffee plants to...

The population in the world is expected to increase from 7.3 to 9.7 billion by 2050. Outbreak of pest and diseases and increased abiotic stresses due to global climate change poses a high risk to crop production to feed the rapidly increasing population. The adaptive immune system CRISPR (clustered ...

Although genetically engineered livestock were first introduced in the 1980s, only three biomedical applications (ATryn®, Ruconest®, Kanuma®) and one food animal application (AquAdvantage® salmon) have been brought to market. The initial promise of this technology was hampered by low efficiency,...
