The regulation of the genes involved in cannabis biosynthesis will be investigated by a team of researchers from York University, the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research, and Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Only a small number of earlier investigations have looked at how the biosynthetic route is controlled. This study may lead to discoveries enhancing hemp cultivation approaches and cannabinoid product development. The research team made a list of nine transcription factors they intend to investigate further to understand the genes’ role in cannabinoid biosynthesis. The researchers will observe key factors that activate the genes for enzymes and how altering these factors may impact the process.
