Sample text

An example is Bt maize, which produces an insect toxic protein in the plant and which, as a result, does not need the application of a pesticide to control European corn borer infection. Another example is the introduction of resistance to the non- selective herbicide, Roundup, trait in crops, allowing the spraying of Roundup for weed control without damaging crop plants. Output traits, on the other hand, are those that alter the harvested product. One example is the increase of the oleic acid content of soybeans, resulting in an improved product for food and industrial use.

In such an A. tumefaciens strain, a replicating plasmid vector carrying whatever DNA fragment in between the LB and the RB can be introduced, and this strain will then transfer the new recombinant T-DNA to the plant cell (Fig. 3b). The bacterium is thus providing a transport system, enabling transfer of foreign genes into plants. This method works especially well for dicotyledonous plants like potatoes, tomatoes and tobacco, but was originally less successful in crops like wheat and maize. However, recently, much progress on A.
