  • Abstract A synthetic version of the cry1Ac gene of Bacillus thuringiensis has been used for the transformation of coffee species (Coffea canephora and C. arabica) to confer resistance to an important pest, the coffee leaf miner (Perileucoptera coffeella and other Leucoptera spp). Somatic embryos were co-cultivated with the LBA4404 strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens containing the cry1Ac gene. More than 100 transformed plants from independent transformation events were obtained for each coffee… CONTINUE READING
