STENOFOLIA Gene Doubles Yield and Sugar Release in Switchgrass

Tadege press release-STF gene-1

One important source of renewable clean energy is lignocellulosic biomass from non-food perennial grasses such as switchgrass, which is a dedicated bioenergy feedstock in the U.S. Increasing the biomass yield and sugar release efficiency of switchgrass have been a major focus by genetic improvement research to meet the demands for a sustainable lignocellulosic fuel production Read More

Control of Flowering Time Can Potentially Increase Switchgrass Biomass Yield

Tadege Press release1

To satisfy increasing demands for lignocellulosic biomass as a source of renewable energy, switchgrass, a dedicated bioenergy feedstock in the U.S., should produce as much biomass as possible. This can be achieved by delaying flowering while prolonging the vegetative stage in switchgrass. One key genetic switch that determines production of biomass is regulating the genes Read More
