Exciting (because photosynthesis is about collective excitations of electrons in plant molecular complexes)
Photosynthesis Hack Will Make Plants More Productive So the World Can Feed 40% More
In some of our most useful crops (such as rice and wheat), photosynthesis produces toxic by-products that reduce its efficiency. Photorespiration deals with these by-products, converting them into metabolically useful components, but at the cost of energy lost. South et al. constructed a metabolic pathway in transgenic tobacco plants that more efficiently recaptures the unproductive by-products of photosynthesis with less energy lost. In field trials, these transgenic tobacco plants were ∼40% more productive than wild-type tobacco plants.
I don't like and don't trust this research. Plants are perfect as they were made by Nature.
