The CSIC participates in the discovery of a gene that affects tomato quality

Researchers have discovered the transcription factor that regulates tomato chloroplast development and eventually fruit quality. The study, published in the journal ‘Science’, indicates that a mutation introduced by man produces tomatoes with lower than normal sugar levels An international investigation in which the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) has participated has discovered the transcription […]
