Annual report from Mistra Biotech

Published: 06 March 2017

It's here! The annual summary of the research progress and results of Mistra Biotech. Read about the PhD student Catja Selga who connects genetic variation to different traits in potato, and Dennis Eriksson who connects researchers.

Peter Borring is a farmer with both conventional and organic crop production – what is his view on agriculture, consumers, and the technological developments in breeding?

In the section presenting research results you can read about how labelling of GMOs affect consumers’ perception of risks of biotechnology, pigs that eat residual products of field cress, the need for an updated legislation on genetic modification, potato breeding in Fennoscandia, and about goals and hurdles of genomic breeding, and much more.

As usual, the Chair of the board and the Programme Director share thoughtful words.
