Precision crop breeding, using genome editing tools such as clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) systems to improve useful traits in crop plants, holds great potential for the future of agriculture. Using CRISPR-Cas9, recent studies have engineered domestication traits in wild-relative species of tomato crop for higher nutritive value and better adaptation to diverse stresses.
