A Brief History and Outlook on Plant Engineering
Advances in plant mutagenesis and transgenesis will enable more sophisticated and precise engineering efforts in plants.
Synthetic Promoters for Precise Control of Gene Expression in Plants
Synthetic promoters can be designed rationally to provide tremendous advantages over their natural counterparts in terms of promoter strength and specificity.
Delivering Genes to Plants
Traditional methods of gene delivery to plants are labor- and time-intensive, are suitable for only a small number of hosts, and have high toxicity and limited practical applicability. This article discusses how nanoparticle-based approaches could enable efficient gene transfer into plants.
Solar-Driven Synthesis of Bioactive Natural Products
Using synthetic biology, researchers are harnessing the photosynthetic reducing power generated in the chloroplast for synthesis of high-value products.
Process Control for the Process Industries — Part 2: Steady-State Characteristics
Chemical processing requires a different approach to control and automation than other types of machine and equipment control. This article focuses on the factors related to the steady-state characteristics of a chemical process.
