I posted a query about the value of a vacuum for seed transformation. I
was not the only one who had heard this rumor, but I think it may be
nothing more than a rumor. Only one person responded who had actually
tried it and her results are included below. Thanks Nicole!
I tried and it works but the frequency is very low ( 1 transformant for
100 plants deeped in a concentrated agro suspension) and not repeatable.
vaccum is necessary to a good frequency.
