MiniVector Applications in Plant Science

Plant applications for transformations – Especially now that there are concerns about genetically modified organisms, the advantage of having a vector that doesn’t have any antibiotic resistance genes or origin of replication is a plus, because we can safely do plant transformations and integrate the gene of interest to make a plant that is more resistant to insects, more tolerant to drought stress, and other biotic and abiotic stresses. We have plans to explore these areas in the near future at Twister Biotech.
