Rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium sp.) generated by Agrobacterium rhizogenes mediated Ri-insertion for improved essential oil quality


Transgenic plants of rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium graveolens cv. Hemanti) have been produced from Agrobacterium rhizogenes (strains A4 and LBA9402) mediated hairy root cultures.
