Deploying a new strategy for multiplex genome editing, researchers used CRISPR/Cas9-mediated mutation to knock out a specific gene controlling pigment, generating albino rice seedlings. The new approach is expected to increase the efficiency of making genetic improvements in a wide range of organisms.
