Harnessing the value of tomato genetic resources for now and the future

Project description

Growing the perfect tomato in the age of gene editing

Red, round and juicy, tomatoes are among the world’s most widely grown vegetable crops. The path from wild plant to mainstay ingredient in countless dishes is one of domestication. Today's tomato is the product of years of selective breeding. What is more, even though it is vulnerable to emerging diseases and climate change, the tomato’s rich genetic resources and information are making it possible for scientists to organise a management structure for its protection. The EU-funded HARNESSTOM project will build on this research. Specifically, it will demonstrate that the increasing use of genetic resources is key for food safety and security and can lead to innovation. The goal is to boost resistance against major emerging diseases, increase tolerance to climate change and improve quality.
