New Data Shows Compositional Equivalency between RNAi, Unmodified Soybeans | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers from China's Ministry of Agriculture last week published new data showing comparable nutrient and anti-nutrient content in short hairpin-expressing and non-transgenic lines of soybeans, adding to the body of evidence showing that RNAi modification does not negatively affect crop plants.

Interest in agricultural applications of RNAi has been steadily growing as firms in the space look to develop new varieties of plants with improved characteristics using the gene-silencing technology.
