Laura Willett talks about how the USDA-ARS team, lead by Steve Garczynski, is using the gene editing tool, CRISPR, to edit codling moth before it matures into larvae and eventually an adult. The team is looking for ways to prevent codling moth, a pest for tree fruit growers, from propagating. (TJ Mullinax/Good Fruit Grower)
