Patent application filed by the University of Guelph (Canada)
The present disclosure is directed to transformation of any explant from monocot plants using Agrobacterium. According to the applicants, an advantage of the disclosed method is that vacuum infiltration of the tissue in the presence of Agrobacterium and a phenolic compound such as acetosyringone yields better transformation efficiency than by wounding. According to the inventors, the method is also simpler than previously described methods. Because the known patent applications have lapsed, the disclosed methods may be in the public domain. If you’d like to use it and are uncertain that it is in the public domain in your jurisdiction, it may be best to contact the assignee, for which a recent contact address disclosed on the website is firstname.lastname@example.org.
