Building a better rice plant

Scientists say they are limited to what they can do with rice unless they totally re-engineer its genetic structure. The main way to do this is boosting photosynthesis in rice, the scientific equivalent of bolting on a turbo-charger. A global project is trying to do just that, with the aim of genetically enhancing rice to double yields and become as productive as corn.
