Transforming chloroplasts induces more effective gene silencing in potato: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/347/6225/991.short It also reduces risk of transgene flow.
Bypassing a plant's defense for pest defense Colorado potato beetles can skeletonize the leaves on a potato plant, devastating crop yields. Insecticides are increasingly useless as the beetle evolves resistance. Zhang et al. used RNA interference to take down this beetle (see the Perspective by Whyard). Success required shifting production of the double-stranded RNA to the plastids to evade the plant's own RNA management mechanisms. The insect's ...
