Abstract

In the current agricultural scenario, high nutritional value and yield are the major goals to deal with increasing population and malnutrition. Vegetable crops include a wide variety of species having high genetic diversity and form a crucial part of the human diet worldwide. Recent biotechnological interventions have allowed for incorporation of desired traits into target varieties. Among these interventions, genome editing has gained widespread application at a rapid pace. Tools like zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) and CRISPR/Cas have been utilized extensively and curated accordingly for the improvement of vegetable crops. This chapter focuses on the progress and challenges pertaining to CRISPR/Cas and will also shed light on the biosafety aspect of genome editing in vegetable germplasms globally.
