Multigene metabolic engineering for the increase of photosynthetic efficiency

Abstract:

Improving photosynthesis is one of the most promising approaches to increase crop yield. To date, most efforts to enhance photosynthesis have focused on single-gene approaches. However, from a theoretical and experimental perspective, it is evident that multigene manipulations could lead to a greater impact. This DPhil project sets out to implement two innovative multigene metabolic engineering strategies for improved photosynthesis in Nicotiana tabacum. Firstly, combinatorial co-transform...
