Project description

The objective of this StarTT IOF project is to provide quantitative data on commercially valuable traits such as starch content and drought tolerance generated by the application of the protein interference (Pi) technology in crops (Zea mays) with the aim to secure a technology licensing deal for crop improvement and to deliver new IPR.
