In this project we used A. tumefaciens to insert genes into Brassica oleracea that code for enzymes that produce farnesyl diphosphate and amorpha 4, 11-diene as well as a cytochome P450 that catalyzes multiple oxidations of intermediates. Through this we hope to show that the production of the precursor for artemisinin in the form of artemisinic acid is possible in larger quantities than they occur in A. annua.
