James works on the metabolic engineering of oilseed crops and has been instrumental in modifying plant seeds to produce long-chain omega-3 oils. These have strong health benefits for consumers and these plants will both reduce pressure on fish stocks as well as create a new land-based production platform. James also leads a project which is focused on increasing the plant oil yield to meet the demand created by growing populations and oil consumption.
