Genetic engineering of potato starch opens doors to industrial uses — ScienceDaily

Humble potatoes are a rich source not only of dietary carbohydrates for humans, but also of starches for numerous industrial applications. Texas A&M AgriLife scientists are learning how to alter the ratio of potatoes’ two starch molecules — amylose and amylopectin — to increase both culinary and industrial applications. For example, waxy potatoes, which are …
