Genetically modified grass research. Geneticist (left) and molecular biologist examining transgenic Brachypodium grass plants in a growth chamber. The plant in the geneticist's hand has produced seeds. Brachypodium is easy to propagate in the laboratory and amenable to genetic engineering. It is a candidate for use to produce biofuels. This research is being carried out by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) of the US Department of Agriculture. Photographed in the USA.
