Enhancing carotenoid levels in cereals by esterification

We have identified a carotenoid esterase and are looking to understand its function in plants and to manipulate it in 1-2 cereals species to enhance antioxidant and provitamin A levels.

Possible techniques: molecular genetics, biochemistry, developmental biology, GMOs and plant transformation

Our first manuscript on this project is in preparation
