Ongoing research project

Abiotic stress tolerant crops: survey of developments

A research project is being commissioned by COGEM to gather information on abiotic stress tolerant crops that are being developed using genetic modification or gene-editing. COGEM wants to get an overview of the crops that are being developed and obtain information to assess whether the expectations about the possibilities that genetic modification and gene-editing offer for the development of abiotic stress tolerant crops are realistic.
