Plant Genetic Engineering’s Golden Child

Plants that can survive droughts. Plants that can resist pests. Plants that taste better and have more nutrients. All these innovations that feed more people on an increasingly smaller planet are thanks to model organisms like Arabidopsis. A little genome makes this organism easy to sequence, and thus, easy to study and manipulate. If it weren’t for this golden child of plant genetic engineering, food shortage problems would have cropped up a lot sooner. You can buy this gold-plated Arabidopsis necklace for yourself as a reminder of just how lucky we are to have technology and innovation. It also makes a great gift for plant science researchers, geneticists, farmers, and foodies everywhere.
