Plants can provide most of the nutrients for the human diet. However, the major crops are often deficient in some of the nutrients. Thus, malnutrition, with respect to micronutrients such as vitamin A, iron, and zinc, but also macronutrients such as the essential amino acids lysine and methionine, affects more than 40% of the world's population. Recent advances in molecular biology, but also the grasp of biochemical pathways, metabolic fluxes, and networks can now be exploited to produce crops… CONTINUE READING
