 Transgenic plants of grapefruit cv. Rio Red (Citrus paradisi Macf.) have been obtained by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated gene transfer using seedling-derived epicotyl segments as explants and kanamycin as the selective agent. The transformation procedure includes a shoot elongation phase with a liquid medium overlay, which provides additional selection(More)
A simple and fast RNA gel blot procedure is described that uses 50 mM NaOH to simultaneously transfer and fix RNA to a positively charged nylon membrane. The RNA is transferred in a downward direction, and transfer is routinely completed within 2.5 h. The resulting blots give increased sensitivity over existing methods without affecting RNA integrity and(More)
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a staple food for over 600 million people in the tropics and subtropics and is increasingly used as an industrial crop for starch production. Cassava has a high growth rate under optimal conditions but also performs well in drought-prone areas and on marginal soils. To increase the tools for understanding and(More)
