End Date: Jun 30, 2016
Improve photosynthetic efficiency of crop plants and crop canopies.
1) An improved photorespiratory bypass pathway will be engineered into crop plants. 2) Mathematical modeling will be conducted to predict the optimum chlorophyll content of leaves to maximize the seasonal integral of photosynthesis and the optimum chlorophyll content of plants will be engineered in plants.
