Camelina sativa: A study on amino acid content
Romanian Biotechnological Letters
Camelina, is relatively a new crop though is known for humanity from ancient times. Camelina draw attention for its oil rich in fatty acids therefore researchers began to focus on it in a variety of studies from the growing practices to animal feed and chemical composition of seed and oil and their uses. This experiment was conducted to determine the amino acids content in the groats of three camelina varieties (Mădălina, created by BIOTEHGEN in collaboration with the University of Agricultural
... ity of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Sciences of Bucharest, Calena, with Austrian origins and a local population cultivated by Banat University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine from Timisoara). The determination of amino acid was made in the research platform of Banat University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine from Timisoara. The research material that was used was the resulting groats after Soxhlet oil extraction. Furthermore, the results were compared between them and between other results obtained by researchers in an attempt to demonstrate the versatility, adaptability and constancy of this crop of the future named Camelina.
