Plants are crucial to the health and wellness of humanity. Over thousands of years, in an attempt to establish themselves within a single region, early humans began to use cultivation techniques, which is now called agriculture. It was with the advent of farming - when men realized that planting seeds resulted in germination - that societies began to develop more than 12,000 years ago. Communities then started to grow plants to feed them, and over the years, they developed a variety of techniques to make them resistant to the effect of climate changes, such as plagues (insects), diseases, and dry soil.

When uORF, the coding sequence of the tobacco gene, is taken away and the major sequence is overexpressed, the number of other genes that plays a part in sugar metabolism is activated by the gene; eventually, the sucrose level is increased in tobacco leaves. If the uORF is not taken away, the overexpressing gene will boost sugar content in tobacco leaves just to a point. The boosted sucrose inhibits the uORF, which inhibits the main part of the gene, affecting its ability to increase the sucrose content (Sagor et al.,
