Project: Improvement of the Agrobacterium system for genetic engineering of rice.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- We want to improve the T-DNA transfer process to engineer rice plants genetically. We will continue our previous research on the T-DNA transfer mechanism in order to identify and characterize the other bacterial genes involved in virulence. We will also select adequate rice varieties and rice organ tissue for agro-infection.
