In Planta AgrobacteriumMediated Transformation of Adult Arabidopsis thaliana Plants by Vacuum Infiltration

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ book series (MIMB, volume 82)


Plant genetic transformation was initiated and developed m the 80s thanks to the convergence of constant progress m the protocol of regeneratton from tissue culture, molecular techniques leading to well-expressed marker genes after transfer m plant cells, and the dtverslficatlon of DNA delivery methods.
