About this book


Agrobacterium Protocols offers beginning and experienced researchers the most comprehensive collection of step-by-step protocols for the genetic manipulation of plants using Agrobacterium. The topics range from the maintenance of bacterial culture collections to aspects of the metabolism and physiology of transformed tissues and transgenic plants.

Drawing on the work of leading scientists from laboratories around the world, Agrobacterium Protocols provides a wealth of techniques for introducing specific DNA sequences into target plant species and discusses the environmental implications of genetically engineered plants. Its detailed procedures will facilitate rapid transfer of advanced techniques to other laboratories and their exploitation in fundamental and applied plant biology.
