Evogene launches model plant validation system for monocots
"The successful implementation of our novel monocot validation system is an important additional achievement as we pursue our mission of providing the ag-biotech industry with a complete solution for plant trait improvement for food, feed and fuel through combining state of the art biotechnology and advanced breeding methods," stated Dr. Hagai Karchi, Evogene's Executive VP R&D and CTO. "Furthermore, we are pleased to see partner's choice to utilize this unique capability, not only with respect to genes we have discovered, but also for use with its other candidate genes."
Definitions - Monocot, Dicot and close evolutionary relatives
- Flowering plants are largely classified as either Monocot or Dicot Phylums characterized by generally different plant morphologies.
- Monocot plants have one single embryonic seed leaf. Monocot plants include three of the most economically important food crops: corn, rice and wheat as well as some of the largest and most familiar groups of plants, such as lilies, orchids, agaves, palms, and grasses.
- Dicot plants have two embryonic seed leaves. Dicot plants include important commercial crops such as soybean, cotton, canola and sunflower. In addition, many of the fruits, vegetables, spices, roots and tubers are classified as dicots.
