Selective Gene Silencing Leads to Ultra-low Gossypol Cottonseed

12:00 EST 12 Feb 2020 | ISAAA

Scientist Keerti Rathore and team from Texas A&M University used selective RNA interference to selectively silence the gene δ-cadinene synthase to reduce gossypol concentration in the seed by 97%, without lowering the gossypol in other parts of the cotton plant where it is needed as defense against insects and diseases. The results are pub...
