Trans fats are also called partially hydrogenated fats because the oils are converted in a solid fat at room temperature changing the carbon to carbon double bond to a carbon to carbon single bond structure (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 128). Saturated fats contain carbon to carbon single bonds in its structure, then making its structure more rigid, less likely to bend in shape, and solidifying it at room temperature (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 127). Foods that are considered unhealthy fats are eggs, meat dairy, and coconut oil (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 127). Unsaturated fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered healthy fats (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 127). Unsaturated fats contains at least on carbon to carbon double bond in its structure, then making its structure less rigid, more likely to bend in shape, and liquefying it at room temperature into an oil (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 127). Foods that are considered healthy fats are nuts, seeds, avocados, olives and other plants (McGuire et al., 2013, pg. 127).…

    FAD2, a very important enzyme in the fatty acid biosynthesis pathways. Pennycress has relatively high Erucic (22:4) acid content, and disadvantages of Erucic acid is that it has a relatively poor cold flow properties. Cold flow is the tendency of a solid material to move slowly or deform permanently under the influence of mechanical stress (cold). The goal is to construct a knockout of FAD2 in the seeds, which we are hoping will reduce the amount of unsaturated fatty acids, making the oil…
