Welcome to PlantEngine (COST Action FA1006)

This site provides information abot the COST Action FA1006, Plant Metabolic Engineering for High Value Products.

Since the COST Action has ended in 2015, this page will not be updated regularily. If you are looking for a new platform for researchers working in plant metabolic engineering, you might instead visit the website of the International Society for Molecular Farming.



PlantEngine is supporting the cloning system GoldenBraid, which will give a toolbox for plant synthetic biology and metabolic engineering. Details will follow soon.
