Dear all,

I plan to try to transform Arabidopsis with an entire BAC. So, I wonder
to know which protocol could be the best: transformation by
microprojectile bombardment seems to be the best solution, but does
anyone have a protocol  for a stable transformation by microprojectile
I know that in tobacco they succeeded to tansfer an insert of 150kb but
it was with a special BAC called BIBAC. Does anyone already use with
BIBAC for Arabidopsis?
