Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
amy797E synthetic gene derived from Thermococcales spp. thermostable alpha-amylase enzyme enhances bioethanol production by increasing the thermostability of amylase used in degrading starch
pmi  * Escherichia coli Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) enzyme metabolizes mannose and allows positive selection for recovery of transformed plants
