Chinese scientists have developed an artificial method for starch synthesis from carbon dioxide, the first of its kind globally. The study, conducted by the Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), was published in the journal Science on Friday.
As a major component of food, starch is generally produced by crops through photosynthesis. This process involves about 60 biochemical reactions and complex physiological regulation. Many studies . . .
