  3. STTR Phase I: New dwarfing genes to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in wheat

    SBC: Gene shifters, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfing genes, present in more than 90% of the wheat varie ...
