Polyhydroxyalkanoate polymers and their production in transgenic plants.

Commercialization of plant-derived polyhydroxyalkanoates will require the creation of transgenic crop plants that possess high product yields, normal plant phenotypes, and transgenes that are stable over several generations. The studies included in this review describe the progress that has been made toward achieving these goals in both model plant systems and commercial crop plants.
