Improvement of Biomass and Grain Yield in Crop Plants
A rice transcription factor gene (HYR) increases plant biomass and photosynthetic rates leading to an increase in grain yield. In addition, transformed rice plants display improved water use efficiency and exhibit significantly higher biomass accumulation as well as grain yield over wild type control plants under drought conditions.Transforming and...

Low Phytic Acid, High Sucrose and Low Stachyose Soybean Lines
Novel soybean lines having high levels of sucrose but low phytic acid and stachyose content. The soybeans are easily digested and provide high energy content for animals and humans. Low phytic acid content permits animal feed to be produced that does not require phytase, yet does not result in significant production of pollution to the environment from...
