Currently, about 60% of our clothing consists of a polyestra, and on natural fabrics there are only about 6%. A team of breeders from the Australian State Association of Scientific and Applied Studies worked on the removal of high-quality elastic cotton fibers, which would allow to abandon the use of harmful dyes in the textile industry.

By defining which areas of the genetic code of the plant are responsible for its painting, they began to replace them with other genes to create a range of different colors. In the laboratory conditions, scientists raised fibers from bright yellow to dark purple colors.

To transform the obtained plant tissues in a cotton team, a few more months will be required. In parallel, they also work on creating a variety of cotton with very elastic fibers, clothing from which will not spine.

Thanks to the gene modification, Korean agronomas recently managed to grow
