Abstract:
The pineapple genetic engineering program has multiple goals focusing on nematode resistance, pineapple mealybug wilt virus resistance, flowering and fruit ripening control, and fruit quality was initiated in 1995. The program involves collaboration between the University of Hawaii, the University of Leeds, UK, the Hawaii Agriculture Research Center (formerly the Hawaii Sugar Planter Association), the United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service, DNAP, and the Pineapple Growers Association of Hawaii. The pineapple genetic engineering program is a model multi-institution, inter-disciplinary, initiative that is driven by participatory management of all involved including Hawaii's pineapple industry. The program will be judged by demonstrating that the technologies being developed solve the problems being addressed. The Hawaii pineapple industry role in this program is crucial to the final product development component of the program (e.g. patenting and licensing).
