CSIRO post-doctoral fellow Jing Zhang working on abiotic stress responses of leaf oil in tobacco. We are getting a good understanding of how these plants respond to environmental stresses like drought
Dr Petrie was a panel member at AusBiotech’s 2018 conference in Brisbane, http://ausbiotechnc.org/ He spoke about his experience with omega-3 canola development and deregulation and made the point that GM deregulation is becoming faster and cheaper as new technologies develop. The bottleneck is not new traits; it is knowing what to do with them!
Yes, that is a tobacco plant! Folear CEO Dr James Petrie and CSIRO scientists Dr Surinder Singh and Dr Xue-Rong Zhou met with top researchers at the Tobacco Research Institute centre in Qingdao to discuss leaf oil technology in tobacco.
