  • Researchers in China have demonstrated a way to develop plants with resistance against Phytophthora parasitica through the knockout of a microRNA (miRNA). The researchers used CRISPR and other tools to show that overexpression of the gene core-2/I-branching beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (AtC2GnT) increases resistance in Arabidopsis thaliana. Moreover, they showed that the miRNA miR398b suppresses the expression of AtC2GnT, suggesting that CRISPR knockout of miR398b might lead to Phytophthora resistance.
