Unscramble the Blue Letters

So, if you look at this, you see the wild wheat. It has the ability to produce 20 to 30 temis antibiotics from the root systems. Our group has worked for the last 15 years to try and locate the genomic region responsible for producing these antibiotics and tfrsnear to the cltteuavid wheat. We have done it. You see that the orange, orange is here part of the chrmsoomoe that is coming from the wild wheat, which is coding the antibiotics. We have got that integrated to the wheat genome without disrupting the elite [agronomic] architecture of the wheat system, and also without dpitrunsig the yiled potential and without interfering with the bread-making quality of the wheat.

Original Text

So, if you look at this, you see the wild wheat. It has the ability to produce 20 to 30 times antibiotics from the root systems. Our group has worked for the last 15 years to try and locate the genomic region responsible for producing these antibiotics and transfer to the cultivated wheat. We have done it. You see that the orange, orange is here part of the chromosome that is coming from the wild wheat, which is coding the antibiotics. We have got that integrated to the wheat genome without disrupting the elite [agronomic] architecture of the wheat system, and also without disrupting the yield potential and without interfering with the bread-making quality of the wheat.
