and SGI have focused on Jatropha for several reasons: it is a tropical tree that is one of the highest yielding oilseed plants in the world; it can be grown on marginal, non-food producing lands; has a very short generation time; can be productive for 30 to 40 years; and its seed oil and biomass are ideal for biofuel production.
SGI and ACGT
will continue to do additional sequencing and analysis of the oil palm genome and when completed, this will become the reference genome.
The discovery of successful cancer gene therapy treatments are what my husband and I hoped for when we founded ACGT
a decade ago," noted Barbara Netter, president and co-founder of the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy.
