The cyanobacterial CCM as a source of genes for improving photosynthetic CO2 fixation in crop species

Price, G. D; Pengelly, J. J. L; Forster, B; Du, J; Whitney, S. M; von Caemmerer, S; Badger, Murray; Howitt, S. M; Evans, J. R


Crop yields need to nearly double over the next 35 years to keep pace with projected population growth. Improving photosynthesis, via a range of genetic engineering strategies, has been identified as a promising target for crop improvement with regard to increased photosynthetic yield and better water-use efficiency (WUE). One approach is based on integrating components of the highly efficient CO(2)-concentrating mechanism (CCM) present in cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) into the chloroplasts...[Show more]
