Most genetically modified plants are generated by the biolistic method (particle gun) or by Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation.
Optimizing conditions for biolistic inoculation of Begomovirus in tomato and tobacco
Agrobacterium tumefaciens and/or biolistic are used to deliver new genes in the cells which are then regenerated and verified to get final transgenic plants ready for functional analysis.
The main advantages of biolistic technology, such as Gene Gun (Bio-Rad, USA) or Biojector 2000 (Bioject Medical Technologies, USA) lie in the fact that the technology possesses high efficiency.
