Opinion

Heh, huh, wow

  • CRISPR has been used for knockout of the asparagine synthetase gene, TaASN2, of wheat. The feat yielded grains with 90% reduced levels of free asparagine. Free asparagine is the precursor for acrylamide - a suspected carcinogen - which forms during the baking, toasting and high‐temperature processing of foods made from wheat.
