MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, GENETIC TRANSFORMATION AND PLANT IMPROVEMENT

K.G.M. Skene, N. Steele Scott, T.J. Baribault
The advantages and constraints of genetic transformation for the improvement of woody horticultural species are discussed. Methods of introducing foreign DNA to plant cells are described, and examples of the genes encoding useful characters that have been introduced into plants are given. Progress with transformation of woody plants is outlined.
