Biomanufacturing by chloroplast transgene expression has the potential to produce significant amounts of biopharmaceuticals, endow plants with novel commercial or humanitarian capabilities, enhance phytoremediation methods and harden plants against adverse environments. Plastid bioengineering exploits the phenomenon of homologous recombination to specifically integrate heterologous sequences into the plastid genome. Previous research suggests the plastid genome 16S–23S internal transcribed… CONTINUE READING
