The ease of integrative transformation with foreign genes and the extent of their expression and stability in successive generations determine the applicability of direct gene transfer. InNicotiana plumbaginifolia, one to ten copies of foreign DNA were integrated into the plant genome, resulting in simple to complex patterns of integration. Genetic analysis showed that in more than 50% of the cases, this DNA inserted at two or more loci in the genome. Of the 156 crosses performed between F1… CONTINUE READING
