The concept of domesticating plants dates back to ancient times with initial dependence on natural changes and later approaches using mutagenesis. In order to address the issue of food insecurity due to population demands, decrease in arable land (due to excessive human interference) and climate change, the concept of "gene editing" is being pursued among the slew of approaches by researchers. This book comes at a time given that the year 2020 was ten years since the use of homing endonucleases and zinc finger nucleases to produce the first gene-edited plants. The year 2012 saw the emergence of CRISPR/Cas9, which subsequently altered the arena of gene editing to receive "The Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2020." The book concisely summarizes the concept of genome editing and its relevance in plants along with the approach, as described by research. Latest developments in approaches along with case studies and examples of genome editing have been elucidated. Further, the current scenario of the regulatory checklists across several countries concerning genome-edited plants has also been presented to enable a reader to gain a complete picture.
