Abstract: The CRISPR/Cas9 system has been demonstrated to efficiently induce targeted gene
editing in a variety of organisms including plants. Recent work showed that CRISPR/Cas9induced gene mut

INVERTEBRATES WITH CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
Most animals have a circulatory system that serves needs of cells.
Circulatory system:transports oxygen and nutrients, such as glucose and amino acids. There it
picks up wastes which are later excreted from

2. Breaks down into small molecules that can cross plasma membranes
3. Absorbs these nutrient molecules
