Plant Genomics and Molecular Pharming
Molecular Pharming utilizes plants to create substantial amounts of pharmaceutical substances like antibodies and vaccines. It is as same as the technique for creating Genetically Modified Crops, the artificial introduction of genes into plants.National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its intention to support plant genome research through the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP). Plant Genomics Research Program (PGRP) awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that NSF offers supplements to support research collaboration with scientists in developing countries. The intent of Developing Country Collaborations in Plant Genome Research (DCC-PGR) awards is to support collaborative research linking U.S. researchers with partners from developing countries to solve problems of mutual interest in agriculture, energy and the environment, while placing U.S. and international researchers at the center of a global network of scientific excellence.
