Virtually unheard of mere decades ago, genetically engineered plants today make up much of the nation’s harvest. Today, the impact of having agricultural genome sequences cannot be overestimated. Once a genome sequence is found, researchers can take basic laboratory research and get new varieties into the hands of growers at a significantly accelerated rate. This discovery could one day open the way for novel applications to utilize production crops like cotton as an important renewable resource for food, fuel and fiber.
