Studies on the Use of Transducing Bacteriophages as Vectors for the Transfer of Foreign Genes to Higher Plants
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 3)
Many plant scientists throughout the world are currently attempting to introduce new genes into higher plants by the use of purified DNA. Such attempts are clearly highly ambitious and the difficulties are likely to be formidable. The successful introduction of foreign genetic material into a higher plant in such a way as to modify the plant’s heritable characteristics necessarily involves four highly complex processes:
Of these four essential prerequisites, we shall only be concerned here with the uptake and expression of foreign DNA.
