Plant Transformation


Key technology for an efficient agricultural production

The significant degree of development biotechnology has reached is reflected upon genetic transformation, the tool that allows to realize molecular strategies to obtain design-trait crops. Through this technology it is possible to broaden the genetic base of species of interest and to shorten the time for developing improved crops. 

Our platform has the ability to transform numerous plant species, either model or crops; however, it is focused on soybean, alfalfa and corn. Besides, complementary techniques are applied such as multiplication and micropropagation of selected materials (GM events, mother plants, elite materials), rescue of embryos and generation of doubled haploid lines which allow for accelerating the development of varieties.
