THE mechanism of tumorogenesis by Agrobacterium tumefaciens, the organism responsible for crown-gall tumours in plants, may be subject to critical experimental analysis in a host-pathogen complex only when the precise time during which tumour initiation occurs and the time required for the initiation of individual tumours are known. Knowledge of these time requirements and the factors influencing them may also provide insight into the number and kinds of processes involved in crown-gall tumour… CONTINUE READING
