Review: The Chlamydomonas CO2-concentrating mechanism and its potential for engineering photosynthesis in plants

Many green algae have the ability to concentrate CO2 to enhance their photosynthetic performance. Mackinder reviews these algal CO2-concentrating mechanisms (CCMs) and what steps would be required to introduce them into higher plants. He also compares progress and pitfalls towards introducing algal CCMs into plants to that of other photosynthesis-engineering strategies including Rubisco engineering and C4 engineering.
