  • Expanding Plant Oil Production: Learning How to Make Leaves Fat

    February 25, 2015

    During the 502nd Brookhaven Lecture, Changcheng Xu explains how he and his collaborators use biochemical and genetic analyses to identify important protein components that control oil synthesis and storage in plant leaves. He also discusses the potential biotechnological implications of efforts aimed at enhancing oil accumulation in abundant plants for renewable, carbon-neutral bioenergy production. Read More
