Sarah: …….Well, maybe the title of this blog is a little far-fetched, but I couldn’t resist. Purple theme, gene-splicing…it just links in so well with AccessNano and my blog of 2 days ago! A group of researchers from the UK and mainland Europe have inserted sanpdragon genes into the garden tomato and created a purple fruit with boosted pigment anthocyanins. These gene-boosted tomatoes have been shown to significantly extend the life-span of cancer-susceptible mice. Anyone for a purple bloody-mary?
