Brachypodium distachyon is a novel model system for structural and functional genomics studies of temperate grasses because of its biological and genetic attributes. Recently, the genome sequence of the community standard line Bd21 has been released and the availability of an efficient transformation system is critical for the discovery and validation of the function of Brachypodium genes. Here, we provide an improved procedure for the facile and efficient Agrobacterium-mediated transformation…

Agrobacterium-Mediated Transformation of Brachypodium distachyon.
A method for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of the inbred B. distachyon lines Bd21 and Bd3-3 is described, which has been shown to be efficient and facile in several studies that resulted in the creation of over 22,000 T-DNA mutants.
Optimizing callus induction and proliferation for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of Brachypodium distachyon
Results showed that 2.5 mg l−1 2,4-D is an optimal concentration to use for both callus induction and proliferation, although 5.0 mg l+1 may also be used for callus proliferation, and results indicated that hygromycin is significantly more efficient than bialaphos when using the Agrobacterium-mediated transformation system.
