The first full genome sequence for Camelina was released on August 1, 2013, by a Canadian research team. The genome sequence and its annotation are available in a genome viewer format and enabled for sequence searching and alignment. Technical details of Camelina's genome sequence were published on April 23, 2014 in the academic journal Nature Communications.
Research scientists at Rothamsted Institute in the UK have developed genetically-modified Camelina sativa plants that accumulate high levels of fish oils / Omega-3 oils EPA and DHA in their seeds. They have generated a plant that can provide terrestrial sustainable sources of fish oils and this achievement can have potentially benefits for human health and the environment.
