Progress in plant molecular biology has been dependent on efficient methods of introducing foreign DNA into plant cells. Gene transfer into plant cells can be achieved by either direct uptake of DNA or the natural process of gene transfer carried out by the soil bacterium Agrobacterium. Versatile gene-transfer vectors have been developed for use with Agrobacterium and more recently vectors based on the genomes of plant viruses have become available. Using this technology the expression of… CONTINUE READING
