Key Gene to Accelerate Sugarcane Growth Is Identified

News

Sugarcane yields have been static for decades owing to constraints on culm (aerial stem) development. By manipulating the activity of this gene in transgenic sugarcane lines developed in Australia, the researchers succeeded in substantially increasing culm volume and changing the allocation of carbon to structural and storage molecules.

Genetic Engineering Can Stop Poplar Trees Spreading

News

The largest field-based study of genetically modified forest trees ever conducted has demonstrated that genetic engineering can prevent new seedlings from establishing. The “containment traits” engineered in the study are important because of societal concerns over the spread of genetically engineered beyond the boundaries of plantations.
