  • The sunflower genome has been decoded

    INRA scientists have just completed the sunflower reference genome sequence. This achievement comes as part of the SUNRISE project in collaboration with the International sunflower genome consortium. This major advancement will help improve varietal sunflower breeding programs, a very promising area of research which has proven to be an environmental asset for future agricultural systems. It will provide farmers with new varieties that are better adapted to production methods, food production and industrial uses, while also responding to the sector's economic challenges. The results will be made public during the “days exchanges on sunflower” conference taking place June 28 and 29, 2016 in Toulouse (France).
