World's first biotech jatropha developed in Singapore
Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory and Singaporean firm JOil have developed a biotech jatropha whose seeds yield 10% more oil for biofuel production than ordinary seeds. JOil will field-test the jatropha after it gets the OK from the Genetic Modification Advisory Committee of Singapore. The partners plan to launch the biotech plant in 2015.
