Several approaches to gene editing have been developed. As an example, the CRISPR system has generated a lot of excitement in the scientific community because it is believed to be faster, more accurate and more efficient than other existing gene editing methods.
While most gene edited crops are not yet being grown by farmers, examples of gene-edited crops created by scientists include non-browning mushrooms, waxy corn, slow-growing cabbage, and mildew-resistant grapes.
