Abstract Watermelon is an annual vegetable crop that suffers from various diseases during growth. Genetic engineering is an effective tool for improving plant disease resistance. This paper presents an effective transformation protocol designed for a female parent watermelon line mediated by Agrobacterium . In this protocol, 2 times MS Fe-EDTA were supplemented into Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium to suppress the chlorosis during watermelon explants culturing, and the optimal preculture time (5… CONTINUE READING
