Recombination: Recombination in Cyanobacteria and Lower Plants After Vector-Mediated DNA Transfer

  • Heinz D. Osiewacz
Conference paper
Part of the Progress in Botany/Fortschritte der Botanik book series (BOTANY, volume 48)


During the last 15 years techniques have been developed to identify and isolate DNA sequences of interest, to recombine them in vitro with genetic elements serving as vectors, and to introduce these new constructs into various organisms. Using this new technology, it is now possible to hybridize a given host strain with well-defined nucleotide sequences, and then to study the effects on gene expression, replication, recombination, etc. that occur as consequence of these manipulations. The following review is intended to summarize and discuss specific characteristics of transformation systems developed for cyanobacteria and lower plants. No attempt is made to include systems developed for higher plants and other eukaryotes. Here the reader is referred to recent reviews and monographs (e.g., FRIEDT and WENZEL 1985; ESSER et al. 1986).
