Transformation 1 - Plant Tissue Culture

Rate Me

Tissue Culture

The tissue culture process is used by crop genetic engineers because seeds and plants consist of billions of cells. It is not possible to put a new gene into every one of these cells. However, it is possible to put a new gene into one or a few individual tissue culture cells. Through tissue culture the transformed cell can then be regenerated into an entire plant with each cell containing the transgene. The gene has become a permanent part of the transgenic plant's genome and will be passed on to its progeny.
