MetadataShow full item record
Methods are provided for increasing plant growth rate, biomass and tolerance to stress by genetically engineering plants to contain and express a gene of the ascorbic acid synthesis-cell wall synthesis network (e.g. GlcUA reductase, GLOase or MIOX). Transgenic plants that are genetically engineered in such a manner are also provided.
