Dear "Aranetters",

At the moment I'm setting up selection with gentamycin for my arabidopsis
transformants. I tryed concentration of 15, 25 and 40 mg/l Gentamycin
(Medium: 0.5x MS, no sugar, 0.8% Agar). 15 and 25 mg seems to be to low, 40
to high. Is there anybody who has experience with genta selection? What is
the optimal concentration? Should I add sugar to the medium? Is it maybe
better to use phytagel in stead of agar?

Any advise is welcome. Thanks in advance.
