Sorghum genetic modification increases yield

Sorghum genetic modification increases yield

March 3, 2018 |

In New York, a simple genetic modification can triple the grain number of sorghum, which is used for food, animal feed, and biofuel. Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory figured out a genetic change boosts the plant’s yield: by lowering the level of a key hormone, generating more flowers and more seeds. Their discovery points […]

DOE taps Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to develop biofuels knowledgebase

July 20, 2011 |

In New York, researchers at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have been awarded funding to create out of many separate streams of biological information a single, integrated cyber-“knowledgebase” that will focus on a specific assortment of plants and microbes that the DOE hopes to exploit to produce biofuels, to sequester carbon in the ecosystem, and […]
