Plants produce a large number of diverse metabolites when they grow and develop as well as when they respond to the changing external environment. These are an important source of human nutrition and medicine. In this review we emphasized the major issues of the primary-specialized metabolic interface in plant metabolism, described the metabolic flow from primary to specialized metabolism, and the conservation and diversity of primary and specialized metabolites. At the same time, we summarized the regulatory mechanisms underpinning the dynamic balance primary and specialized metabolism based on multi-omics integration analysis, as well as the natural variation of primary and specialized metabolic pathways and genes during the plant evolution. Moreover, the discovery and optimization of the synthesis and regulation elements of various primary to specialized metabolic flows provide the possibility for precise modification and personalized customization of metabolic pathways, which will greatly promote the development of synthetic biology.
