Hot off the press and open access for all to read. The latest issue of Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences contains the publication titled “Genome Editing of Plants”, written by Dave Songstad, Joe Petolino, Dan Voytas and Nancy Reichert which covers genome editing from chemical and biological mutagenesis to ZFNs, TALENS, CRISPRS and ODM (also referred to RTDS). The authors are all involved with the SIVB as well as the Editors of this journal, Dennis Gray and Bob Trigiano. To cite this article: D. D. Songstad, J. F. Petolino, D. F. Voytas & N. A.

Physiological and Biochemical Features of Embryogenic and Non-embryogenic Peach Palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) Cultures Plant somatic cells are highly plastic under the adequate culturing conditions; they can change their epigenetic, genetic, biochemical, and hormonal profiles to undergo dedifferentiation into an embryogenic state. These embryogenic cells can be induced to reenter the cell cycle and develop into somatic embryos, which can then be germinated, rooted, acclimated, and transferred to the field like any plant from a zygotic embryo. However, multiple types of tissue can be cultivated in vitro under the exact same culture conditions, and, indeed, from the exact same...Read More
