Japanese group assembles a 134.5 kb rice chloroplast genome from 4-6kb

We established a protocol to construct complete recombinant genomes
from their small contiguous DNA pieces and obtained the genomes of
mouse mitochondrion and rice chloroplast using a B. subtilis genome
(BGM) vector. This method allows the design of any recombinant
genomes, valuable not only for fundamental research in systems biology
and synthetic biology but also for various applications in the life
