Breeding Tobacco for Health
The Newcotiana project aims to modify the composition and, therefore, the use we make of the tobacco plant, enriching it with substances of high added value used in medicine and cosmetics. For this, the researchers will develop new highly precise breeding technologies such as the CRISPR technique, and apply them to the breeding of tobacco and other related species. In this way, it is intended, among other objectives, to revalue the traditional cultivation of tobacco, providing it with new uses compatible with health and contributing to revitalize tobacco areas in decline with products of high added value more in line with the Knowledge Economy."
