Abstract:

The Golden Rice Project was established to combat vitamin A deficiency worldwide. Rice, as we all know, is a major grain crop grown all over the world. Beta-carotene and vitamin A are not found in white rice. Rice-eating countries have a higher rate of vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A deficiency has been linked to death in low-income countries in the past. Vitamin A deficiency can contribute to disorders such as night blindness, which can progress to blindness, eye and skin dryness, and maternal mortality. Vitamin A insufficiency affects around 250 million children, according to the World Health Organization. It includes beta-carotene, which is responsible for the golden yellow colour of the grain. Two daffodil genes and one bacterium gene were employed.
