TALENs Gene-Editing Tool

The 2Blades Foundation was instrumental in helping to develop an earlier and still widely used gene-editing technique called TALEN, which has numerous practical applications in plant science and other biosciences. It has been used to create new disease-resistant varieties in ricewheat, and other crops.
