Tridge summary

The Rural Development Administration (RDA) has discovered six resources rich in glucosinolates, a compound with numerous health benefits, within the cabbage genus held by the Agricultural Genetic Resources Center. The resources were identified among 1,340 Brassica genus resources using advanced chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques. The findings, published in international journals Foods and Plants, will be used by the RDA to distribute the selected Brassica crops as breeding material for functional crops.

- Discovered 6 resources by analyzing 1,340 cabbage crops held by the Agricultural Genetic Resources Center - Published as a paper in an international academic journal... Plans to expand research into various Brassica crops The Rural Development Administration announced that it had selected six resources rich in glucosinolates by analyzing the genetic resources of the cabbage genus held by the Agricultural Genetic Resources Center. Crops of the Brassica genus, such as cabbage, leaf mustard, broccoli, and kale, are widely used food ingredients in Korea, China, and Southeast Asia. In particular, cabbage is a key ingredient in kimchi, and the domestic cultivation area is approximately 2,700 hectares. Brassica cabbage crops contain glucosinolates, which are known to be effective in anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and improving cardiovascular health. The Rural Development Administration's Agricultural Genetic Resources Center used ultra-performance liquid ...
