To increase both sugar yield and biomass production in the model plant Arabidopsis
To ease the industrial processing of plant biomass into energy, plants are engineered to contain less lignin. Unfortunately, this intervention typically leads to reduced yield. Researchers have now discovered a way to overcome this problem. Moreover, the strategy the researchers at the VIB-Ghent University Center for Plant Systems Biology does not just restore the biomass yield.
