Holistic Approach to Genetics and Plant Breeding

Holistic Approach to Genetics and Plant Breeding

The research shows how, with the help of a fast, non-destructive and green analysis method, near-infrared spectroscopy, we can obtain a global overview that mirrors how the entire chemical composition of nutrients in a barley grain is changed, for example, by a mutation in a single gene. This is in contrast to current conventional plant breeding, where you do not have an overview of all the changes that the barley grain undergoes when a single gene is modified.
