The microbe Agrobacterium tumefaciens is harmful to plants and useful to scientists for one and the same reason: It transfers DNA into plant genomes. Found in soil worldwide, Agrobacterium causes disease in plants by transferring its own DNA into plant cells. But in the laboratory, the ability to move foreign genes into plants has made the microbe a standard tool for investigating plant genetics and modifying crops. During genetic transformation, a single stranded copy (T-strand) of the… CONTINUE READING
