Lifeasible has developed a powerful plant transformation platform to generate genetically modified plants (also known as transgenic plants). We provide both transient and genetically stable transformation services in a wide range of plant species, including model plants, major food crops, economic plants, and new-era bio-energy feedstock plants (please see our plant species list for details).
Plant transformation refers to the transfer and incorporation of engineered genes or plasmids into the plant genome. It is not only an essential biotechnological approach for in-depth research of plant growth, but also a promising tool for modern agriculture, specifically for the introduction and selection of desired crop traits. Some of the most popular plant transformation methods include gene gun delivery, thermal/electric shock, microinjection, virus/Agrobacterium/Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)-mediated transformation, protoplast fusion, as well as silicon carbide fibers mediated transformation. Which method to choose is dependent on the target species and specific study purposes.
