A microspore embryogenesis protocol for Camelina sativa, a multi-use crop – A. M. R. Ferrie, and T. D. Bethune – Journal of Plant Biotechnology – 2011

Summary: Microspore-derived embryos have been produced from Camelina. After 28 days embryos were observed and these were regenerated to plants and selfed seed was produced. The highest embryogenic frequency achieved was 38 microspore-derived embryos from 100,000 microspores.

Constitutive or seed-specific overexpression of Arabidopsis G-protein y subunit 3 (AGG3) results in increased seed and oil production and improved stress tolerance in Camelina sativa – S. R. Choudhury, A. J. Riesselman, and S. Pandey – P Biotech 2014

Summary: To evaluate the role of AGG3 towards seed and oil yield improvement, the gene was overexpressed in Camelina sativa. Analysis showed that constitutive overexpression of AGG3 resulted in faster vegetative as well as reproductive growth accompanied by an increase in photosynthetic efficiency. Overall, this study draws a strong link between the role of AGG3 in regulating two critical yield ...
