Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina announced in the Parliament that the country's scientists and researched, after years of research, have succeeded in unveiling the genome sequencing of jute.

With this significant scientific breakthrough, Hasina stated that, Bangladesh had now joined those few countries of the world, who had unveiled the genome sequencing of jute.

With the help of genome sequencing of jute, the lost glory of Bangladesh's jute and jute goods will return to fore, the industry again will be able to contribute to the economy and in a way update the jute fibre in to Bangladesh' golden fibre by fetching good revenue for the jute farmers, averred Hasina.

Unveiling the genome sequencing of jute, will also help improve the jute fibre, manufacture new jute seeds that can be attuned with the unreceptive weather caused due to climatic changes, reduce diseases and ultimately build again the jute industry.

Although, Hasina said that, this discovery has opened new gates of opportunities, there are still extensive amounts of research required to be done with the help of millions of jute farmers and people related to the jute industry.

Genome sequence of jute was discovered by Bangladeshi scientist, Moksudul Alam, who had also discovered the genome sequence of papaw in US and rubber plant in Malaysia.

Assisting Alam were young agriculture scientists and researchers from bio-chemistry and bio-technology departments of Dhaka University, Jute Research Centre, Data Soft System Company, which is a Malaysian institute and the University of Hawai.
