Transformation of Sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.) and Evaluation of Herbicide Resistance in Transgenic Plants

Abstract

We have developed an Agrobacterium mediated transformation procedure for sugarbeet, which is known for its recalcitrant behavior in vitro. A friable type of callus was used as the starting material, and combinations of different chimeric gene constructs, consisting of antibiotic or herbicide resistance genes, were evaluated. Sugarbeet was engineered for… (More)
