Dear Plant Edders,

Does anyone know the method of DNA transfer of the gene of interest into Bt
Maize, Roundup-Ready Oil Seed Rape (Canola) and Flavr-Savr tomatoes? Any
other examples would also be of interest.

Agrobacterium? Ballistics? Electroporation? ....?

The question came up during discussion with some of my students and I had
to confess I didn't know the answer but was confident that I could find out
via Plant-Ed!

Thanks in advance.
