Efficient Transient Gene Knock-down in Tobacco Plants Using Carbon Nanocarriers
Authors:  Gozde S. Demirer and Markita P. Landry, date: 01/05/2021, view: 446, Q&A: 0
Gene knock-down in plants is a useful approach to study genotype-phenotype relationships, render disease resistance to crops, and enable efficient biosynthesis of molecules in plants. Small interfering RNA (siRNA)-mediated gene silencing is one of ...

Barley Transformation by Particle Bombardment Using Callus
Author:  Sung-Yong Kim, date: 06/05/2020, view: 938, Q&A: 0
The delivery of desired construct into plant cells relies mainly on Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. However, Agrobacterium transformation is still very challenging for barley as only one genotype is amendable to ...
