Technology Description:

The invention involves the production of high-molecular weight (MHW) gluten toproduce dough with viscoelastic properties suitable for bread and noodle making. A syntheticHMW-glutenin gene construct is genetically engineered and can be added to wheat normallyunsuitable for baking or noodle making, to change the elastic properties of the flour. The synthetic gene is designed for easy future modifications for specific end-uses of the flour.
