Use of geminiviral vectors for functional genomics.

Abstract

Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) can be used to study the function of a gene by downregulating its expression and analyzing the resulting phenotype. VIGS is a handy tool that is less time consuming and labor intensive than other methods for generating mutants. Geminiviruses are particularly convenient and valuable choices as VIGS vectors in functional… (More)
