Objectifs
The objective of this research is to apply the techniques of genetic engineering and related developing sciences, such as genomics and proteomics, toward the production of valuable alternative products in established crop plants. Through the application of recent advances in genetic sciences, it is feasible to modify the genome of an established oilseed crop plant to result in the production of high value oils or other new products which have industrial, nutritional, and pharmaceutical applications.

Descriptif
The specific approaches of this project are to identify natural sources of industrial use oils, identify components of the metabolic pathways for these oils which can be transferred to agronomic crops, isolate genes from he natural sources which include the desired components, identify genes or products which enhance the production of the desired oil, design genetic constructs to facilitate the transfer of the desired genes to agronomic crops and to enhance the production of the desired oil in the crop, develop techniques for efficient and enhanced tissue culture for use in experimental learning in laboratory settings, and proceed with plant transformation and field tests to evaluate the success of this approach to developing alternative crops
