About the "Fantastic":
in rice the Xa21 gene confer disease resistance and it is already here; I
don't have time to search in databases, but few DNA sequences related to
drought resistance should be already published; in my knowledge we lack
only the gene that gives the capability to develop every flower in a seed.
In apple the genes for scab, mildew, aphids resistance are known, the
sequences still lacking; constantly bearing can be achieved by a
parthenocarpic gene that makes the fruit develop in any case (sequence
available); harvest, ripening and shelf-life can be modified by genes that
reduce ethylene production (already done in tomato, in apple and peach
sequences available); the gene for the full bright red colour is under
However .... (there will be no shortage of
