Notes "Cornell University scientists have engineered a key plant enzyme and introduced it in Escherichia coli bacteria in order to create an optimal experimental environment for studying how to speed up photosynthesis, a holy grail for improving crop yields...The method is described in a paper, "Small subunits can determine enzyme kinetics of tobacco Rubisco expressed in Escherichia coli," published in the journal Nature Plants."
