Global future protein source, mungbean’s genetic information now accessible to all
Future proofing the planet’s population involves researching foods that can grow in arid climates, provide high yields and be used in a wide variety of ways. Mungbeans have been a staple in Asia and used in everything from poppadums and noodles to desserts for centuries. They have come to the attention of scientists because they can be genetically manipulated for resilience in harsh climates and to produce high yields. To accelerate research into this useful protein source, the information about all the different varieties of this important food source is being shared globally.
