The Mutant Form of Acetolactate Synthase Genomic DNA from Rice is an Efficient Selectable Marker for Genetic Transformation


The proper use of a marker gene in a transformation process is critical for the production of transgenic plants. However, consumer concerns and regulatory requirements raise an objection to the presence of exogenous DNA in transgenic plants, especially antibiotic-resistant genes and promoters derived from viruses. One approach to overcome this problem is… (More)
