Tissue Culture & Transformation

We generate transgenic plants in a wide variety of species and cultivars for both model plants and crops, and are active in researching new techniques for the generation of previously un-transformed plants species and cultivars. We maintain germplasm collections and generate research tools such as plant cell suspension cultures.
