Objectives

 

  • Development of crop genotypes with zinc, protein, β-carotene, iron, low phytate, and folic acid through conventional and genetic engineering and their evaluation.
  • Study of bioavailability and biosafety of developed crop genotypes.
  • Gene identification, allele mining and functional genomics for the candidate genes associated with enhanced micronutrient and protein content and reduced phytate content through Next Generation Technologies.
  • Socio-Impact studies for assessment of consumer knowledge, preference and preparedness for biofortified products and sensitization and popularization of biofortified products.
