Title: Increased caloric and nutritional content of plant biomass

Abstract

As described herein, plants expressing algal Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase Type Two (DGTT) from heterologous nucleic acids can alter acyl carbon partitioning in plant vegetative tissues and increase acyl-CoA-dependent triacylglycerol synthesis, thereby increasing the lipid content of the plants' tissues.
