Towards Sustainable Potato Production Using Biotechnology

Research project We propose a biotechnological approach to improve pest and disease resistance and reduce pesticide use in potato production by metabolic engineering of natural biopesticides in the form of glucosinolates into potato. Glucosinolates are defence compou ... Project Completion Report: The defense-related plant metabolites known as glucosinolates play an important role in agriculture, ecology, and human health. Despite an advanced biochemical understanding of the glucosinolate pathway, the source of ...
