Summary "This book focuses on the genetic transformation of a range of plants using a number of different methods. Many plants have been found to be quite difficult to transform and so various techniques were developed. These techniques include: Agrobacterium suspension groups, electro-poration, PEG, "whiskers" and various biolistic methods. A chapter on intellectual and property rights is included."--BOOK JACKET
