abstract
It can be assumed that the introduction of foreign genes in the plant genome involves stress-inducing manipulations. Reduction of this stress can possibly improve the efficienty of the process and the quality of the transformants. This opens up new perspectives for transformation of e.g. cereals which are still difficult to transform.
