Using CRISPR/Cas9, DSB are induced in target sequences of the cruciferin 3 gene (A) or the protoporphyrinogen oxidase gene (B) for site-specific mutagenesis. Plants expressing these nucleases can be transformed with homologous repair templates to obtain specific mutations via homologous recombination (gene-targeting).
