© 2019 The Authors Synthetically designed alternative photorespiratory pathways in tobacco and rice plants have paved the way to enhanced plant biomass production. Likewise, some in vitro- and in vivo-tested carbon-concentrating cycles hold promise to increase plant biomass. We hypothesize a further increase in plant productivity if photorespiratory bypasses are integrated with carbon-concentrating cycles in plants.
