UK Allows Development of Gene-Edited Crops to Fight Climate Change

Britain's government recently approved plants to allow researchers to use gene-editing techniques to develop crops that yield more, are more resistant to pests, and cut greenhouse emissions. This promising  type of biotechnology  is designed to quickly and precisely introduce new or altered genes to exchange poor plant characteristics, for more favorable ones. In countries across the globe gene edited crops have already been created like non-browning mushrooms, low-nicotine tobacco, as well as herbicide tolerant soybeans and corn. With the UK joining this field, even more amazing crops are expected to emerge in the coming years.
