Dr. Tobacco, the healthy breed!

Biofaction created a new animated introductory clip for our EU funded project Newcotiana. Have a look at how tobacco can be redesigned to save its reputation and become a plant that’s good for you and your health.

Taking advantage of cutting-edge molecular breeding methodologies, researchers will develop new varieties of tobacco to produce added-value compounds such as antibodies, vaccines and drugs in a sustainable manner. Newcotiana is an H2020 EU research project coordinated by scientists at the Institute for Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology (IBMCP) from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). The research consortium consists of 19 industrial and academic partners from 8 European countries and Australia.
