TWICS: Unlocking The Secrets of Terpene Production in Cannabis
Dr. Cris Alves discusses the latest in cannabis science and industry news. Today he reviews a fascinating paper from a collaboration between Steep Hill Labs and Medicinal Genomics. Focusing on identifying the complete genomic sequences of the terpene synthase family of Cannabis directly involved in the synthesis of terpene molecules within the plant and how they vary between plant subtypes. The paper titled; Genomic characterization of the complete terpene synthase gene family from Cannabis sativa, published in the journal PLOSone.
