This gene could be used to drastically improve the lives of people in the developing world. Researchers one day might be able to simply implant this gene into any crop that a local population grows in order to boost their protein intake. Many problems are found from protein deficiency, including marasmus and infestation from parasites. This would help developing populations attain the protein that they need and guarantee them a healthier life.
