    Cellulase and Macerozyme-PEG-mediated Transformation of Moss Protoplasts
    This protocol describes the generation of protoplasts from protonemal tissue of the moss Physcomitrium patens (syn. Physcomitrella patens), using Cellulase ONOZUKA R10 and Macerozyme R10, followed by polyethylene glycol (PEG) ...
    Optimize Highly Efficient Genetic Transformation Method of Spring Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Cultivars Using Mature Embryo
    Authors:  Dongjin Kim and Megan Hager, date: 11/20/2020, view: 959, Q&A: 0
    Genetic engineering is a powerful tool to develop desired traits in crop plants to make the crops suitable for future demand and changing environments. For the genetic engineering of wheat cultivars, the development of efficient transformation and ...
    Agrobacterium-mediated Transformation of Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
    Authors:  Natasha Navet and Miaoying Tian, date: 11/20/2020, view: 2070, Q&A: 1

    Sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) is a popular herb with high economic value and is currently threatened by a severe oomycete disease. An efficient transformation method is a prerequisite for gene functional analysis to accelerate molecular breeding

    Barley Transformation by Particle Bombardment Using Callus
    Author:  Sung-Yong Kim, date: 06/05/2020, view: 1547, 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 ...
    PEG-mediated, Stable, Nuclear and Chloroplast Transformation of Cyanidioschizon merolae
    Authors:  Maksymilian Zienkiewicz, Tomasz Krupnik, Anna Drożak and Kinga Kania, date: 09/05/2019, view: 2393, Q&A: 0
    The ability to achieve nuclear or chloroplast transformation in plants has been a long standing goal, especially in microalgae research. Over past years there has been only little success, but transient and stable nuclear transformation has been ...
    Development of an Efficient Transformation System for Halotolerant Yeast Debaryomyces hansenii CBS767
    Authors:  Anu P. Minhas and Dipanwita Biswas, date: 09/05/2019, view: 1910, Q&A: 0
    Debaryomyces hansenii is one of the most osmotolerant and halotolerant yeasts. Further, its association with traditional cheese and meat products imparting special flavors to these products project this yeast with enormous biotechnological ...
    Measurement of the Length of the Integrated Donor DNA during Bacillus subtilis Natural Chromosomal Transformation
    Authors:  Ester Serrano and Begoña Carrasco, date: 08/20/2019, view: 1976, Q&A: 0
    For natural transformation to occur, bacterial cells must first develop a programmed physiological state called competence. Competence in Bacillus subtilis, which occurs only in a fraction of cells, is a transient stress response that ...
    Efficient Assembly of Large Multiplex CRISPR/Cas9 Guide Arrays for Maize Genome Editing
    Authors:  Jarrett Man and Madelaine E. Bartlett, date: 05/05/2019, view: 4032, Q&A: 0
    CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing in maize is an effective tool, and researchers commonly wish to target multiple genes simultaneously. Transformation of maize is currently expensive and tedious, so researchers are incentivized to build vectors that ...
    Agrobacterium-mediated Transformation of Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi Leaf Explants
    Authors:  Ana Lilia Rosales-Campos and Abel Gutiérrez-Ortega, date: 01/20/2019, view: 7897, Q&A: 0
    Plant transformation has become an important technology for the large-scale production of a number of goods, ranging from vaccines and pharmaceutical products to biofuel. A plant that is frequently used for this purpose is Nicotiana tabacum ...
    Quantitative Transformation Efficiency Assay for Bacillus subtilis
    Authors:  Christian L. Loyo and Briana M. Burton, date: 12/05/2018, view: 5230, Q&A: 0
    Bacillus subtilis (B. subtilis) is a model Gram-positive organism used to study a variety of physiological states and stress responses, one of which is the development of competence. Competence refers to the physiological state of ...
