The Molecular Biology of Cauliflower Mosaic Virus and Its Application as Plant Gene Vector

Part of the Plant Gene Research book series (GENE)


The artificial introduction of new traits into living cells by means of molecular gene transfer techniques has been developed into a routine procedure, applicable to both prokaryotic and various eukaryotic organisms. For higher plants, nature itself has evolved an elegant and sophisticated gene transfer system in the Ti-plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens. It ist now widely used to introduce and stably anchor new genes in the genome of susceptible host plants. (See Chapter 7 by S. Rogers, this volume.)
