Efficient Agrobacterium-mediated Transformation of the Elite–Indica Rice Variety Komboka
Genetic transformation is crucial for both investigating gene functions and for engineering of crops to introduce new traits. Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is an important model in plant research, since it is the staple food for more than half of ...
