This study focuses on an emerging application of biotechnology--Plant Molecular Farming [PMF]--which proposes to use genetically modified plant crops as production systems to produce commercially valuable biomolecules, pharmaceuticals, or industrial products, rather than to produce food, feed, and fibre.
Plant molecular farming involves the use of plants to produce high value 'biomolecules' (e.g., pharmaceuticals, bioplastics, etc.) rather than to produce food or livestock feed.
