Abstract Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat. cv. Kundan has been found susceptible to infections of Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) which drastically affects the quality and quantity of blooms and poses significant constraints in commercial cultivation of chrysanthemum in India. Therefore, development of inbuilt resistance in C. morifolium against CMV seems to be essential. Agrobacterium -mediated transformation of petiole explants of C. morifolium was attempted using p RoK 2 binary vector harbouring… CONTINUE READING
