Abstract

Although many important and valuable traits are associated with plant natural products, engineering natural product pathways for plant improvement has often been limited by a lack of understanding of their biochemistry, and by the need for coordinate regulation of multiple gene activities. New approaches are facilitating both the discovery of genes that encode natural products and pathway engineering. Notable successes have been reported in altering complex pathways to improve plant quality and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
