Plant Transformation Made Simple
Advantages and Potential of Plastid Transformation:
An alternative to nuclear transformation and complementary
methodology for plant modification.
Patented technology based on the research of Professor Simon Moller (St. Johns University, New York, CORE, UiS, Rockefeller University, Leicester University). This new plastid transformation technology employs standard biolistic delivery of transgenes to chloroplasts but has several advantages over conventional plastid transformation protocols:
Cost of scaling
Increased biomass, multiple trait engineering, biofuels, functional food/feed, therapeutics
