  • Published 2005


Transgene technology provides a powerful tool for developing traits that are otherwise difficult to achieve through conventional methods. The development of transgenic plants requires the use of selectable marker genes, as the efficiency of plant transformation is less than optimal for many important species, especially for monocots such as durum wheat… (More)
