Current Studies on Plant Cell Transformation
As recently discussed (1) a generalized strategy for plant cell transformation requires the construction of a genetic vehicle which is capable either of integrating into the plant genome, or of independently replicating in the plant cell. The minimum attributes of such a vehicle would be the presence of a selectable plant marker and a site for integration of a passenger sequence.
