COLLABORATION IN Bt PLANT TECHNOLOGY.
Research laboratories and seed companies are invited to
join the Centre for Molecular Biology in developing mutually beneficial
collaborations to explore possibilities of generating novel plant varieties by
using the complimentary strengths of the partnering laboratories, resulting in
the enhancement of national agriculture productivity. This Centre has developed
an excellent repository of Bt genes, isolated from indigenous microbes,
collected from different ecological environments in Pakistan, manipulated them
to optimize expression in plants and placed them under various plant promoters
to obtain desirable expression levels in different plant tissues. More
information on Bt genes and the above programme is available on the website:
