Engineered Tissue Succulence in Plants
Background: This is a novel technology to increase tissue succulence in plants using genetic engineering. Tissue succulence is an important plant trait that improves the drought attenuation of plants, improves salinity tolerance, and optimizes the performance of crassulacean acid metabolism. In an age with pressing need to increase food production and...

Engineering Crassulacean Acid Metabolism to Improve Water-Use Efficiency
Background:This is a novel method for genetic engineering of Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) in plants. CAM isa specialized form of photosynthesis that reduces relative crop water demand five-to-six fold compared with non-CAMplant species. This adaptation saves water by shifting atmospheric CO2 uptake from the day, when the plant loses a highamount...
