Funding: Nordic Forest Research Co-operation Committee (SNS)
Collaboration: Prof. Ewa Mellerowicz, SLU, Sweden; Prof. Claus Felby, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Short project description:
SNS-107. The project will utilize genetic engineering to modify the structure and content of xylan, and establish how the modifications affect wood properties. The modified xylan may be used to produce custom-tailored wood properties.
