Directed Evolution of Plant Processes: Towards a Green (r)Evolution?


Directed evolution (DE) is a powerful approach for generating proteins with new chemical and physical properties. It mimcs the priciples of Darwinian evolution by imposing selective pressure on a large population of molecules harboring random genetic variation in DNA, such that sequence whith specific desirable properties are generated and selected. We propose that combining DE and genome-editing (DE-GE) tecnologies represents a powerful tool to discover and integrate new traits into plants foragronomic and biotechnological gain. DE-GE has the potential to deliver a new green (re)evolution research Platform that canprovide novel solution to major trait delivery aspirations for sustainable agriculture, climate-resilient crops, and improved food security and nutritional quality…
