WP2: Oilseed breeding and genetics

WP2 will develop new varieties/genotypes of crambe and camelina that have an improved oil quality targetting industry demand (e.g. higher levels of mono-unsaturated C18, C20 and C22 fatty acids), higher oil yields and improved valorisation of non-oil and vegetative biomass (e.g. by reducing anti-nutritional factors like glucosinolates and sinapine that currently limit use for insect, cattle, pig and poultry feed). The specific objectives of this WP are:
