Bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge), a forage species widely used in the southeastern United States, and from Central Mexico to Argentina, was targeted for improvement through genetic engineering. Embryogenic callus, initiated from germinating seedlings, was bombarded with a vector containing the bar selectable marker/reporter gene that confers resistance to phosphinothricin (glufosinate) herbicide (trade names Liberty, Ignite and Finale). Thirty-two transgenic plants were recovered. These… CONTINUE READING
