GM spuds could beat blight

This image by BBSRC-funded Dr Eleanor Gilroy shows two leaves. The leaf on the left is from a genetically modified (GM) potato plant and the leaf on the right is from a non-genetically modified potato plant.

On the left you can see four white circles where Phytophthora infestans, a pathogen that causes a disease called blight,has grown and produced spores. Blight is a serious disease that was a major cause of the Irish potato famine.

The leaf on the right has not been infected by P.infestans. It contains the resistance(R) gene R3a, which acts to prevent P. infestans from growing.

GM crops, such as this modified potato plant, have the potential to help society overcome the challenges we face in a world which needs to produce more food, using less land, water and energy. Other inputs and by-products of agriculture must also be reduced, such as pesticide use, waste and adverse environmental impacts - a challenge where GM may help find solutions.

GM also gives us the potential to cut out the slow process of breeding from wild relatives. This is a laborious agricultural process which by the time a gene is successfully introduced into a cultivated variety, the pathogen may already have evolved the ability to overcome the resistant gene.

BUT THE ACTING HERE. BECAUSE HE’S DIGORY. AND HE BUILT THAT WARDROBE. WITH THE WOOD FROM THE TREE HE PLANTED. AND SO HE KNOWS IT’S NARNIA. HE’S WAITED HIS WHOLE LIFE, AND HE’S PROBABLY GIVEN UP AND SHOVED THAT HOPE AWAY IN THE BACK OF HIS MIND AND SUDDENLY THESE FOUR CHILDREN SHOW UP AND THEY FIND IT. 

Fun fact: CS Lewis based the professor on JRR Tolkien. Tolkien in turn based Treebeard on CS Lewis.

that is a very fun fact yes
