Transgenic Plants

The genetic manipulation of plant protoplasts by direct

gene transfer has clearly
come of age after a long gestation period. The major
limiting factor to the practical
application of gene transfer is that protoplasts isolated
from many crop species are
recalcitrant to regeneration. However, the great successes
achieved in the past five years in
the field of gene transfer remain as boosters for the future.
Some success stories related to
the production of transgenic plants are described below.
The major successes have been achieved in the transfer of:


Genes for herbicide tolerance.

Insect tolerant genes.
Coat protein genes for cross protection.
Genes responsible for certain antisense RNA
