The impact of genomics on crops for industry


, : The impact of genomics on crops for industry. Journal of the science of food and agriculture 86(12): 1747-1754

The complete sequence of the genomes of two model plants is now available together with technology for the parallel analysis of thousands of genes, the proteins that they encode and the metabolites whose production they control. This review focuses on application of these technologies to engineer output characteristics of crops specifically relevant to non-food use. Following a brief introduction to the resources available for genomic analysis, some examples are provided of how genomics is enabling both transgenic and non-GM manipulation of agricultural materials such as carbohydrates, oils, fibres and speciality chemicals for use as industrial feedstocks.

Bibenzyl glycosides 1-6 were synthesized from 2,4-dihydoxybenzaldehyde and xylose, glucose, cellobiose or maltose. The key steps in the synthesis were the Wittig reaction and trichloroacetimidate glycosylation. Tests for tyrosinase inhibitory acti...

Alkylated nucleotides have been detected by 32P-postlabelling using the enzyme T4 polynucleotide kinase which phosphorylates the 3'-mononucleotides to give the 3',[5'-32P]bisphosphates. These may then be separated by two-dimensional...

Degradation of oxalic acid (OA) by the mycoparasitic fungus Coniothyrium minitans (Cm), and the effects of OA degradation on production and activity of beta-1,3-glucanase of Cm were investigated. Results showed that OA was degraded by 86-92% by C...
