Genetic Transformation of Cells using Physical Methods

  title={Genetic Transformation of Cells using Physical Methods},
  author={A. Rivera and G{\'o}mez-Lim},
The production of transgenic cells is a routinely process that allows to insert genes from plants, fungi, viruses, bacteria and even animals into cells. Genetic transformation requires penetration of the transgene through the cell wall. This process is facilitated by biological, chemical or physical methods. We present a short review of the state of the art of physical methods used for genetic transformation. A general panorama of the traditional physical genetic transformation methods like… CONTINUE READING
