AbstractPennycress (Thlaspi arvense belongs to the Brassicaceae family and is closely related to the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana as well as other agronomical important plants such as rapeseed (Brassica napus), camelina (Camelina satva) or lepidium (Lepidium campestris). In additon to its extreme cold tolerance or over-wintering growth, Pennycress seeds have unique characteristcs in terms of seed-oil content (32-36% w) and compositon, with a high content (38-40%) of erucic acid (22:1). This has atracted the interest of Pennycress as biofuel feedstock because of the exceptonal low-temperature behaviour and energetc capacity characteristcs of its seed-oil. However, although Pennycress could be an atractve alternatve feedstock in Europe, partcularly in the Mediterranean region, it is not cultvated in the EU territory. In our Group we have characterized Pennycress germplasm of European origin and some interestng agronomical traits were detected. Genes involved in seed-oil, erucic acid biosynthesis in Pennycress were identfed, and their regulaton was studied during Pennycress seed maturaton.
