Novel methods for the production of micronutrient-enriched rice
Grant number: LP130100785 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
The increasingly productive Australian rice industry generated AUD$1 billion revenue in 2012. By targeting a rice gene that we recently identified as a key regulator of iron uptake and transport, this project will produce high value, micronutrient-enriched rice grain to improve the nutritional health of people in Australia and throughout the world.
