photosynthesis enhanced through genetical engineering

Genetical engineers have enhanced the efficiency of the photosynthesis process by 40% in genetically engineered tobacco plants. The process corrects a fault in the process, involving the RuBisCo enzyme, that happens in about 20% of the reactions. This fault is present in most plants that do photosynthesis. The technique is likely to boost crop yield substantially. More...
