Research Project: Production of Gmo Sorghum Lines with High Lignin Content

Location: Grain, Forage & Bioenergy Research

Project Number: 5440-21220-032-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 15, 2009
End Date: Sep 15, 2014

To develop sorghum lines with high lignin content in order to test the hypothesis that higher lignin will increase bioenergy available through combustion.

Transgenes expected to increase lignin content will be inserted into the sorghum genome. Transformed lines will be evaluated for lignin content and for energy released during combustion.
