Purdue-USDA team develops fast-track process for genetic improvement of plant traits

The Purdue-USDA team sought to build a resource that learns, from large amounts of publicly available data, to quickly identify what special genes called transcription factors regulate the expression of a given trait in various plant species.

Gene seekers discover atypical genes that control multiple valuable soybean traits

Using relatives of wild soybean, scientists can use gene-editing methods to modify genes that create new varieties more suitable for agricultural production

REVOLUTIONISING THE UK POTATO INDUSTRY: INNOVATIVE PRECISION BREEDING PROJECT PROMISES RADICAL SOLUTIONS

Researchers will focus on two key goals: reducing bruising-related discoloration and making potatoes quicker to cook. These improvements aim to enhance potato quality, cut down on food waste, and meet the evolving needs of consumers.

Purdue biology innovation allows the introduction of valuable traits in plants without creating transgenic plants

Patent-pending novel Agrobacterium strains deliver transfer DNA to a plant's nucleus without integrating it into the genome

Splenda® Stevia Farm Announces Official Operation of Its Fully Integrated Us-based Stevia Farm, Building a New American Industry

Splenda's unique Stevia genetics and innovative US processing will yield high-quality, superior tasting stevia and positively impact the global supply chain

Is the Future Tomato Red?

At one time solely being known as the jewel in the summer salad, the role of the tomato has now evolved into something much bigger - potentially game-changing, in fact. Could it be about to solve the global food crisis? At least, one greenhouse in Holland thinks so.

Using Minichromosomal Technology in Agriculture

Minichromosomal technology does not alter the plants genes in any way. Resulting in faster regulatory approval and a quicker acceptance by farmers.

PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY MARKET

Plant biotechnology plays a vital role in developing new varieties and traits, which include transgenic (genetic engineered) crops, using genetics and genomics and marker-assisted selection (MAS).

A new tomato ideal for urban gardens and even outer space

These new gene-edited tomato plants look nothing like the long vines you might find growing in a backyard garden or in agricultural fields. The most notable feature is their bunched, compact fruit.

Genetic Engineering is a Driving Force for Modern Agriculture

Genetic engineering permits scientists to select only one definite gene to implant. This avoids introducing other genes with unwanted attributes. Genetic engineering also speeds up the development of new foods with wanted traits.

Rewiring plant defence genes to reduce crop waste

This method could render crops more resilient against disease, helping mitigate crop wastage throughout the world. Since the system can be implemented by re-wiring plants natural defence mechanisms, no external genetic circuitry needs to be added.
