Microbe Genome Editing

Microbes are widely used in pharmaceutical, pesticides, food industry, energy, and a series of innovative applications. Through the research on microbe genome, functional genes related with new special enzyme, important metabolic processes, and metabolite are constantly being discovered and applied to production as well as the transformation of traditional industry and technology. It has a certain value in the application of bio-pharmaceutics, pollution control, energy, chemical, and biological manufacturing industries. Early strain transformation mainly concentrate on random screening and simple rational screening, but the disadvantages which included time-consuming, laborious, and heavy workload and no orientation of mutagenesis in traditional methods were gradually exposed as time went on. With the development of modern molecular biology techniques, many new methods for strains breeding appeared with directionality and positive mutation. The emergence of CRISPR-Cas9 technology has greatly promoted the accuracy and efficiency of microbe genome editing.
