Welcome to the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics

3 July 2014.

Scientists at the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics have identified the genes in wheat that control tolerance to a significant yield-limiting soil condition found around the globe – boron toxicity. Published in the journal Nature today, the identification of boron tolerance genes in wheat DNA is expected to help plant breeders more rapidly advance new varieties for increased wheat yields to help feed the growing world population.
