Genetic engineering of plants to enhance selenium phytoremediation



Genetic engineering of plants to enhance selenium phytoremediation



Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 21(6): 567-582



Phytoremediation is the use of plants to remove, contain, or render harmless environmental pollutants. In recent years, much attention has been focused on the improvement of such technologies for this purpose. In this review, we introduce selenium phytoremediation and describe the attempts made to enhance it through genetic engineering.
