Plants have a love-hate relationship with sunlight.
In her PhD thesis Ruth Sanz-Barrio, an agricultural engineer of the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre and researcher at the Institute of Biotechnology (mixed center of the CSIC-Spanish National Research Council, Public University of Navarre and the Government of Navarre), has demonstrated, for the first time, the viability of using specific tobacco proteins (known as thioredoxins) as biotechnological tools in plants.
Unlike the advantages – such as super-sized strawberries, drought-proof corn or fungus-resistant soybeans – the disadvantages of genetically engineered foods are sometimes a little harder to spot.
