OMICS IN AGRICULTURE
You are out for your grocery shopping and are looking for tomatoes with enhanced quality, taste and nutritional composition. Omics can help you make that informed decision and also provide you with a genetic map to help you grow your own deepest red tomatoes.
In an effort to feed the hungry world, staple food crops such as maize have been genetically modified to grow in severe drought-areas. The ever increasing global population accompanied with a declining amount of prime agricultural land seeks new improvements in the field of agriculture. A clear breeding scheme should be put in place to enable sustainable agriculture, along with strategies to develop new crop varieties with high yield potential and stability. The application of omics technologies in the field of agriculture and its positive impact on the bioeconomy of the U.S.A should be taken as an example to strive forward.
Come join us to know more on how Omics tools and techniques can be used to further agricultural research.
