Novel Chemicals from Plants via Bioengineering
Novel chemicals were traditionally extracted from medicinal plants or produced synthetically. However, new development in the field of bioengineering has allowed production of novel products from plants such as edible and industrial oils as well as specific chemicals which could be used as foods with remedial effects.
