Abstract

Agrobacterium tumefaciens has long been proposed as a vector for the introduction of genetic material into plant cells. Recently, this natural gene transfer system has been modified to allow the transfer of any foreign gene of interest to plant cells in a simple and efficient manner. We will describe some of the new Agrobacterium vectors currently in use in our laboratory, some of the interesting genes which have been introduced into plant cells, as well as the different plant culture methods used for the DNA transfer.
