A novel project analyzing the biosynthetic potential of the potato tuber has been initiated and has recently obtained support from STVF in the form of a frame program. The DNA-sequencing of several thousands of expressed genes tags (EST) has been completed, analyzed and submitted to international databases. Analysis of the most expressed proteins is underway. The data will provide a great number of novel enzymes that can be explored and developed by us as wells as by industry.
