New synthetic biology tools paves way for complex plant engineering [Full subscriber]

Agricultural biotechnology strategies often require the precise regulation of multiple genes to effectively modify complex plant traits. However, most efforts are hindered by a lack of characterized tools that allow for reliable and targeted expression of transgenes. Now, researchers at Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) in the USA have developed a new set of synthetic biology tools that could unlock advanced plant engineering.
