Abstract
  In this study, an efficient Agrobacterium-mediated transformation method was developed forpomegranate (Punica granatum L.), a difficult-to-transform plant. In vitro shoot segments wereinoculated with Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 harboring the binary vectorpBI121 carrying the neomycin phosphotransferase ...  Read More
