Discusses and explains the major advances that the new technology of applying molecular genetic techniques of modifying carbon and nitrogen in plants has provided, giving insights into its applications for the benefits of agriculture, the environment and man. The text is divided into three sections, the first focusing on primary nitrogen and carbon assimilation and carbon partitioning; the second looking at compartmentation, transport and whole plant interactions; and the third to related metabolism to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date account of this subject.

Primary nitrogen assimilation, carbon assimilation and carbon partitioning: the photosynthetic electron transport system
efficiency and control
the regulation and control of photosynthetic carbon assimilation
modulation of sucrose metabolism
modulation of starch synthesis
molecular crosstalk and the regulation of C- and N-responsive genes
manipulation of the pathways of sucrose biosynthesis and nitrogen assimilation
manipulation amino acid biosynthesis
regulation of C/N
