OBJECTIVES
  1. To develop technology to sustainably produce high quality goldenseal for the global market,

  2. The product produced is consistent in desirable phytochemical profile targeting selective health benefits,

  3.  The plant materials will be applicable to innovative field cultivation practices.

CURRENT ACTIVITY
  • The development of in vitro-technologies using tissue-culture for propagation and in-door hydroponics to cultivate high quality goldenseal lines for breeding improvement  and to help meet the increased global demand for its bioactive compounds and extracts.
