HYDROXY FATTY ACID PRODUCTION VIA BIOCONVERSION OF HIGH OLEIC OILS
Crop Improvement & Utilization Research
2009 Annual Report
1a.Objectives (from AD-416)
The objective of this cooperative research project is to develop industrially useful oilseed crops. The expected product will contain hydroxy fatty acids.
1b.Approach (from AD-416)
Apply biotechnological and biocatalytic approaches to modify oil composition of high oleic oils provided by Purpan. Documents Non Funded Cooperative Reseach Project with Ecole d-Ingenieurs de Purpan.
Research is underway to develop conversion techniques for fatty acids. Under this agreement, the Albany lab is hosting a scientific exchange student who will carry out the research.
The agreement was monitored by emails and discussion on a monthly basis. It includes an exchange visit by a Purpan student from July to September, 2009.
