Prime Editing Technology and Its Prospects for Future Applications in Plant Biology Research

Figure 2

Possible genetic modifications mediated by prime editing and their potential applications in plant biology. (a) Different types of genetic modifications that can be potentially created using prime editing in plants. (b) Various applications of prime editing in plant biology research. Small rectangle indicates mutation, and different color within them denotes different mutations types. Medium-sized rectangle with yellow color indicates the segment of DNA inserted or replaced with prime editing. RT: reverse transcriptase; Cas9n: Cas9 nickase; SNP: single-nucleotide polymorphism.
