Scientists have created mutant barley to improve beer

To get the perfect barley, the scientists used CRISPR / Cas9 genome editing technology. The authors of the new scientific work explained that they realized the need for strategic crop management.

The scientists genetically modified the Golden Promise barley samples to be either single mutants or double mutants. They then studied how mutants and non-mutants germinate.

All mutants showed delayed germination. Germination was facilitated by treatment with hydrogen peroxide. In addition, all mutants showed accumulation of abscisic acid.

This technology will make it possible to obtain high quality barley for beer. The researchers also hope that they can solve food and environmental problems using improved biotechnological methods.
