Several Camelina lines were grown in small plots at field test sites in the U.S. and Canada.
- Several Camelina lines were grown in small plots at field test sites in the U.S. and Canada.
- Compared to control plants, the engineered PHA Camelina lines emerged and matured later but once established, exhibited good vigor, branching, flowering and seed set.
- Yield10 plans to extract the PHA bioplastic from the Camelina seed for product prototyping, sampling and business development.
- It is truly exciting to reach this milestone in our effort to produce PHA bioplastic in the seeds of field grown Camelina plants, said Kristi Snell, Ph.D., vice president of research and chief science officer of Yield10 Bioscience.
