Prof. Jonathan Gressel
Co-Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, Board Member Prof. Gressel earned his B.Sc. at Ohio State University and M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has been on the staff of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel since then, except for sabbatical leaves at Purdue, Australian National University, USDA Bio Research Labs Fargo, in England and Iowa State. He is now a professor emeritus in plant sciences at the Weizmann. Prof. Gressel's interest in metabolic controls, especially by anti-metabolites, led to international collaborations using transgenics. He is on the editorial board of six journals in plant/pesticide sciences and is active in international organizations in plant sciences. He is the author of over 300 scientific papers and book chapters and author, co-author, or editor of eight books dealing with these issues. His latest books are Crop Ferality and Volunteerism (2005) and Genetic Glass Ceilings - Transgenics for Crop Biodiversity (2008). His research resulted in his being co-inventor on 12 patent applications at the Weizmann, and on 10 more since co-founding TransAlgae. He is the 2010 recipient of the quadrennially awarded Israel Prize in Agriculture for his work in plant biotechnology.

New Witchweed-Fighting Method, Developed by Cimmyt and Weizmann Institute Scientist, to Become Public in July

www.weizmann-usa.org [cached]

Prof. Jonathan Gressel of the Weizmann Institute's Department of Plant Sciences proposed an innovative solution to the parasitic weed problem that relies on a new use for a certain type of corn that was developed, using biotechnology, in the United States.
The corn carries a mutant gene that confers resistance to a specific herbicide, leaving the corn plant unharmed when treated with this herbicide. As an alternative to spraying entire fields, Prof. Gressel suggested that herbicide-resistant seeds be coated with the herbicide before planting. Prof. Gressel holds the Gilbert de Botton Chair of Plant Sciences at the Weizmann Institute. he Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, is one of the world's foremost centers of scientific research and graduate study.
