Whatever your views are on GMO, there’s no debate that most efforts revolve around increasing the size or abundance of crops. Not so with a project undertaken by Chinese scientists in which genes producing anthocyanins have been engineered into strains of rice. Researchers have developed a method capable of delivering many genes at once and used it to produce high levels of antioxidant-boosting pigments called anthocyanins.
