Description
Potato was genetically modified to over express the glucose-6-phosphate translocator leading to an increase in starch content in potato tubers.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
Solanum tuberosum - Potato, SOLTU
Point of collection or acquisition of the recipient organism
Cultivar: Desirée
