CRISPR and improving crops
The Article: How scientists are using CRISPR to create non-GMO crops by Yi Li touches upon how CRISPR can replace the usage of conventional GMO crops today. By using CRISPR to make these new crops we can solve the problems that GMO crops provide because for annual crop plants like corn, tomatoes, and rice can have the CRISPR genes bred out of their gene pool. This would make the effects of these CRISPR crops not undoable and therefore would not pose the same threats that GMO crops do. CRISPR crops could also be created faster and be more precise than GMO crops, making crops with powerful resistances to droughts, pests, and poor soil. Creating new plant technology to increase yields is essential to keeping up with the growing human population so some type of man made crop is needed to serve us. This method seems to be a very viable option to solve this problem. This CRISPR technology also will likely lower the price of crops and help boost the economy and could be used to help third world countries with their famines. Yi Li States that the CRISPR will work to change the plant by being inserted inside the plant cells. From there the CRISPR will locate and rewrite the relevant section of the DNA. Do you want your food to be cheaper? Do you want to boost the economy? Do you wanna help those who are hungry? Want to learn More about how the concept of CRISPR crops will work. This article (What are genome editing and CRISPR-Cas9?) explains what CRISPR is and how it works to change the genome. And the article Bypassing GMO regulations with CRISPR gene editing will show you how CRISPR is better than GMO and is able to be outside of those regulations.
