    EXCERPT

    Researchers in Japan have edited plant mitochondrial DNA for the first time, which could lead to a more secure food supply.

    Nuclear DNA was first edited in the early 1970s, chloroplast DNA was first edited in 1988, and animal mitochondrial DNA was edited in 2008. However, no tool previously successfully edited plant mitochondrial DNA.

    Researchers used their technique to create four new lines of rice and three new lines of rapeseed (canola).
