Develop isotopic labeling techniques to track primary metabolism in plant tissues through operation of central carbon metabolism that enables oil production and increased biomass yield. Mutants in lipid composition in the seeds as well as carbon sequestration in the leaves generated by Co-PI’s will be compared to wild type plant tissues for differences at the level of primary metabolism and to provide signatures for potentially successful or unsuccessful transgenic stacking combinations.
