Scientists used CRISPR technology to improve bananas
Time of Update: 2021-03-14
Banana stripe virus is a widely distributed virus that causes disease by inserting its own DNA into the banana B genome, which can eventually lead to crop death.
For example, when bananas are threatened by drought or high temperatures, banana stripe virus DNA produces functional viral particles that eventually cause disease symptoms.
