      Berman Quintana, Judit; Zhu, Changfu; Pérez Massot, Eduard; Arjó Pont, Gemma; Zorrilla López, Uxue; Masip Vilà, Gemma; Banakar, Raviraj; Sanahuja Solsona, Georgina; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Bai, Chao; Vamvaka, Evangelia; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Twyman, Richard M.; Bassie Rene, Ludovic; Capell Capell, Teresa; Christou, Paul (Springer Verlag, 2013)
      Genetically engineered (GE) crops can be used as part of a combined strategy to address food insecurity, which is defined as a lack of sustainable access to safe and nutritious food. In this article, we discuss the ...
    • Engineering metabolic pathways in plants by multigene transformation 

      Zorrilla López, Uxue; Masip Vilà, Gemma; Arjó Pont, Gemma; Bai, Chao; Banakar, Raviraj; Bassie Rene, Ludovic; Berman Quintana, Judit; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Pérez Massot, Eduard; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Sanahuja Solsona, Georgina; Vamvaka, Evangelia; Twyman, Richard M.; Christou, Paul; Zhu, Changfu; Capell Capell, Teresa (University of the Basque Country Press, 2013)
      Metabolic engineering in plants can be used to increase the abundance of specific valuable metabolites, but single-point interventions generally do not improve the yields of target metabolites unless that product is ...
    • High-value products from transgenic maize 

      Naqvi, Shaista; Ramessar, Koreen; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Zhu, Changfu; Christou, Paul (Elsevier, 2011)
      Maize (also known as corn) is a domesticated cereal grain that has been grown as food and animal feed for tens of thousands of years. It is currently the most widely grown crop in the world, and is used not only for food/feed ...
    • Maize seeds as a production and delivery platform for HIV microbicides 

      Sabalza Gallués, Maite (Universitat de Lleida, 2013-01-24)
    • Paradoxical EU agricultural policies on genetically engineered crops 

      Masip Vilà, Gemma; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Pérez Massot, Eduard; Banakar, Raviraj; Cebrian, David; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Albajes Garcia, Ramon; Christou, Paul (Elsevier, 2013)
      European Union (EU) agricultural policy has been developed in the pursuit of laudable goals such as a competitive economy and regulatory harmony across the union. However, what has emerged is a fragmented, contradictory, and ...
    • Promoter diversity in multigene transformation 

      Peremartí, Ariadna; Twyman, Richard M.; Gómez Galera, Sonia; Naqvi, Shaista; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Dashevskaya, Svetlana; Yuan, Dawei; Ramessar, Koreen; Christou, Paul; Zhu, Changfu; Bassie Rene, Ludovic; Capell Capell, Teresa (Springer Verlag, 2010)
      Multigene transformation (MGT) is becoming routine in plant biotechnology as researchers seek to generate more complex and ambitious phenotypes in transgenic plants. Every nuclear transgene requires its own promoter, ...
    • Seeds as a production system for molecular pharming applications: status and prospects 

      Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Vamvaka, Evangelia; Christou, Paul; Capell Capell, Teresa (Bentham Science Publishers, 2013)
      The production of recombinant proteins in seeds is achieved by driving transgene expression using promoters and protein targeting sequences derived from genes encoding abundant seed storage proteins. This approach is ...
    • Strategic patent analysis in plant biotechnology: terpenoid indole alkaloid metabolic engineering as a case study 

      Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Christou, Paul (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014)
      The do-it-yourself patent search is a useful alternative to professional patent analysis particularly in the context of publicly funded projects where funds for IP activities may be limited. As a case study, we analysed ...
    • The contribution of transgenic plants to better health through improved nutrition: opportunities and constraints 

      Pérez Massot, Eduard; Banakar, Raviraj; Gómez Galera, Sonia; Zorrilla López, Uxue; Sanahuja Solsona, Georgina; Arjó Pont, Gemma; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Vamvaka, Evangelia; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Rivera Vélez, Sol Maiam; Dashevskaya, Svetlana; Berman Quintana, Judit; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Yuan, Dawei; Bai, Chao; Bassie Rene, Ludovic; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Christou, Paul; Zhu, Changfu (Springer Verlag, 2013)
      Malnutrition is a prevalent and entrenched global socioeconomic challenge that reflects the combined impact of poverty, poor access to food, inefficient food distribution infrastructure, and an over-reliance on ...
    • The potential impact of plant biotechnology on the Millennium Development Goals
