Abstract

The transformation of the plastid genome, until recently restricted to tobacco, is now being extended to a rapidly growing list of crops. This perspective provides an overview of emerging trends of technology development in the field with a focus on vector design and marker excision systems. The new tools will facilitate engineering of the photosynthetic machinery and enable novel agricultural and industrial applications.
