Gosling Research Institute for Plant Preservation
The Gosling Research Institute for
Plant Preservation (GRIPP)

The Gosling Research Institute for Plant Preservation (GRIPP) will help prevent loss of plant diversity through research, education and service. Here scientists will hone cutting-edge technologies to preserve, multiply and conserve threatened plant life.

applied bean genomics & bioproducts
Applied Bean Genomics & Bioproducts
The Phaseolus Genomics and Bioproduct Development project is well underway. The entire bean genome has been sequenced, half of it assembled, and the locations of 15,000 putative genes identified. Several elite breedling lines with improved agronomic traits, including improved disease resistance, have been commercialized. Work on an edible 100% biodegradable alternative to plastic made from bean protein progresses well.
