Omega-3 fish oils from genetically modified oilseed crop

Rothamsted Research scientists have announced the field trial results of genetically modified oilseed crop. The crop, Camelina sativa engineered by the introduction of a set of seven synthetic genes like that of photosynthetic marine organisms has been witnessed to synthesise useful quantities of fish oils (non-native EPA and DHA) with no negative effects on yield. This research provides hope of obtaining omega-3 fish oils from sustainable land-based sources.
