     Vegetable oil is not only the main source of edible oil but also an important renewable biofuel for nproduction and industry for humans. Thus, it is of great scientific significance and application value to elucidate the mechanism of the biosynthesis and regulation of oil in plants, which can improve the content and composition of vegetable oil. In this review, the biosynthesis of plant oil and the progress of genetic research on oil syntheses such as maternal effect, QTL, and GWAS were summarized to uncover the mechanism of lipid accumulation of oil cropsMeanwhile, we summed up the well-known genes that participate in lipid biosynthesis and regulation. This paper was expected to shed light on current research status in this field, provide an important reference to the further understanding of the regulation of oil crops lipid biosynthesis, and to give a better theoretical basis to oil crops molecular improvement and genetic breeding.

Key words:  , vegetable oil;genes related to lipid biosynthesis and regulation;oil crops
