Something’s fishy about new canola project


A joint research between Nuseed, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have developed canola containing omega-3 oil through plant-to-plant gene transfer.

Genes from microalgae were transferred to canola for it to produce canola oil which is rich with long chain DHA, at level equal or better to that found in fish.
