Discovery of 100 million-year-old regions of DNA shows short cut to crop science advances
Date:12/5/2012

r scientists to study as it will ultimately help us to develop crops with specific properties, for example drought tolerance.

"By pinpointing these specific regions, we have zoomed in on what seems to be a very old, and very important, part of DNA.

"We have opened up a short-cut as with this information, the biology community can now focus their experiments on specific regions next to genes which are key targets for plant breeding, and could play an important part in addressing the issue of food security.

"This discovery can be used to underpin future research focusing on working out regulatory codes and link sequence patterns to expression patterns."
