Genetic Engineering of Oils In Vegetable (Non-Seed) Tissues By Diverting Carbon From Starch

INTRODUCTIONTriacylglycerol (TAG) is an ester that is derived from three fatty acids and glycerol. Triglycerides are the main constituents vegetable oil. Generally, in an oil crop species, TAG is produced in seeds, and this TAG can be harvested for various uses. TAG from plant oils are used as feedstocks for biofuels, food and industrial chemicals....

Method to Increase Calorific Content and Enhanced Nutritional Value of Plant Biomass

IntroductionProduction of alternative fuels such as biodiesel is on the rise around the world and in the U.S. due to a strong and growing desire to reduce dependency on petroleum-derived diesel fuel. The acceptance of biodiesel has been slowed due to its higher cost relative to petroleum-derived diesel. The higher cost of biodiesel is directly related...

Divinyl Ether Synthase Gene and Protein and Uses Thereof

IntroductionPesticides are useful and necessary to protect crops from insects and weeds that would otherwise cause harm or destruction. However, pesticides are often burdensome to the environment and sometimes harmful to humans and wildlife. For this reason, alternative technologies are sought that will lessen and ideally eliminate the need to use pesticides...
