The Center for Precision Plant Genomics
Developing plant genomes-by-design, made possible by recent advances in gene editing and plant synthetic biology
We are inspired by the transition from an era of DNA reading – our ability to sequence genomes at high throughput – to an era of DNA writing – our ability to create de novo genetic blueprints.
Our intent is to compose a future with a healthier environment, enriched food, and crops capable of withstanding a changing climate.
The CPPG is currently comprised of five laboratories. These members are:
Michael Smanski (CBS- BMBB)
Nathan Springer (CBS-PMB)
Robert Stupar (CFANS- Agronomy)
Dan Voytas (CBS-GCD)
Feng Zhang (CBS-PMB)
