biolistics

The injection of DNA of interest directly into organelles by firing nucleic acid-coated 1-µm tungsten microprojectiles from a specially modified air gun into host cells

Bacteria elimination after co-culture was also very difficult as the only way to genetically transform beans by the time this work started was by biolistics (Faria et al., 2006).

Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (AMT) is the method of choice for sorghum transformation as it is a simple, low cost and highly efficient alternative to direct gene delivery methods such as biolistics. The main advantage of AMT is the defined insertion of a discrete segment of DNA into the recipient plant genome.
(42) The two main methods of producing transgenic plants are by transporting the DNA into the plant cell via the bacterium agrobacterium tumefaciens or by shooting the DNA through the cell wall using biolistics: see Jim M Dunwell, 'Review: Intellectual Property Aspects of Plant Transformation' (2005) 3 Plant Biotechnology Journal 371, 375.
Therefore, the success of any cotton improvement programme using gene transfer technological tools such as biolistics and Agrobacterium-mediated transformation depends on the availability of plant regeneration systems that are genotype-independent, efficient and which do not yield somaclonal variant (Firoozabady et al., 1987; Gould and Cedeno, 1998; McCabe and Mattinell, 1993).
Particle bombardment technology, also known as biological biolistics or bioballistics, is a nonviral, physical gene delivery method in which target cells are transfected using DNA-coated particles.
Genetic transformation of Eucalyptus globulus through biolistics: complementary development of procedures for organogenesis from zygotic embryos and stable transformation of corresponding proliferating tissue.
First the gene is identified, then cloned, and finally transformed into plants using one of the following three insertion methods: Agrobacterium, biolistics (particle bombardment), or electroporation, which are discussed in greater detail in Chapter 13 Plant Biotechnology and Genetically Modified Organisms: An Overview.
tumefaciens that are used in GE have been rendered nonpathogenic.) Other means of gene transfer for GE include biolistics (where genes are literally shot into plant cells) and a variant, particle discharge (Birch, 1997).
A third is "biolistics," in which particle guns literally shoot trillions of copies of the proper DNA into the cells.
Christian Schopke of the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., and his colleagues are also growing new-fangled cassava, but they employ a different technique, biolistics.
Other technologies include genetically modified sperm-mediated gene transfer, virus/vector mediated gene transfer, liposome-mediated DNA & electroporation of DNA, biolistics, and TALENs & ZFN.
