In the past few years, the use of sequence-specific nucleases for efficient targeted mutagenesis has provided plant biologists with a powerful new approach for understanding gene function and developing new traits. These nucleases create DNA double-strand breaks at chromosomal targeted sites that are primarily repaired by the non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) or homologous recombination (HR) pathways. NHEJ is often imprecise and can introduce mutations at target sites resulting in the loss of gene function. In contrast, HR uses a homologous DNA template for repair and can be employed to create site-specific sequence modifications or targeted insertions (Moynahan and Jasin, 2010).
