GM wheat for increased yield

Scientists from Rothamsted Research, the University of Essex and Lancaster University provided an update on a new research project with GM wheat plants that have been engineered to carry out photosynthesis more efficiently. This trait has the potential for increased yields.

The research is funded as part of the International Wheat Yield Partnership (IWYP). This research project is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and USDA.


Speakers will include:

Prof. Malcolm Hawkesford, Rothamsted Research

Prof. Christine Raines, University of Essex

Dr Elizabete Carmo-Silva, Lancaster University
