Discovery of plant 'nourishing gene' could raise crop seed yield, food security news
University of Warwick scientists have discovered a "nourishing gene" which controls the transfer of nutrients from plant to seed — a significant step which could help increase global food production. The research, led by the University of Warwick in collaboration with the University of Oxford and agricultural biotech research company Biogemma, has identified for the first time a gene, named Meg1, which regulates the optimum amount of nutrients flowing from mother to offspring in maize plants.
