Question

Find out form internet what is golden rice.



    Solution

    The correct option is

    Golden rice is a  new type of rice that contains a large amount of beta-carotene, a precursor for vitamin-A production.

    Golden rice was created by transforming the original rice with two  βcarotene biosynthesis genes:

    (i) psy (phytoene synthase) from daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus).

    (ii) Crt I from the soil bacterium Erwinia uredovora.

    These two genes together produce βcarotene in the rice grain.

    Use of this rice can help reduce vitamin -A deficiency, curing night blindness and colour blindness.
