Submission + - Psychoactive strain of marijuana sequenced (genomebiology.com)

tgibbs writes: The genome and transcriptome of a psychoactive strain of cannabis has been sequenced, leading to insights into the biosynthesis of THC. This information will be useful in understanding the evolution and history of cultivation of the marijuana plant and its divergence from non-psychoactive species of hemp. It could also be useful in genetic manipulation of the marijuana plant to control potency, or to develop transgenic plants in which the psychoactive properties of marijuana are conferred onto other plant species.
