Final Report - PLASTOMICS (Mechanisms of transgene integration and expression in crop plant plastids: underpinning a technology for improving human health)

Project ID: 503238
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report of the PLASTOMICS project aimed to define the mechanisms of several key stages of plastid transformation and foreign gene expression in different plastid types in tobacco, tomato and potato. As revealed in the report, the project has been successful in achieving most of the proposed objectives. It has developed an understanding of the proteins involved in transgene integration into and excision from the plastid genome, and has developed a novel automatic marker excision system. The report also includes a map of tomato and potato plastid DNA showing the location of all genes and open reading frames. Images and project logo are included.
