Genetic Transformation of Plants
Edited by Jackson, J.F.; Linskens, H.F.
Whilst genetic transformation of plants is commonly viewed as a means of bringing about
plant improvement, it has not so readily been recognised as a tool for analysing the function
of plant genes. This book is unusual in that it focuses on the genetic transformation of a range
of plants using a number of different methods. Many plants have been found to be quite
difficult to transform, and so various techniques were developed. These techniques include:
Agrobacterium suspension drops, electroporation, PEG, "whiskers", and various
biolistic methods. A chapter on intellectual and property rights is included.
