Recent years have seen the rapid development of new genetic technologies, such as CRISPR, TALENS and ODM (collectively gene editing), as well as doubled haploids and mapping populations. Together with the rapidly expanding availability of genome sequence data these technologies have the potential to transform plant breeding. This collection will include papers that describe the application of these technologies to crop improvement, and we will work to attract papers addressing targets from developing as well as developed countries.
