Improved Gene Transfer Vector

William Baumgartner, Benedict, Dirk, Murai, Norimoto

AgCenter scientists have invented a new gene-transfer vector. The vector minimizes size and maximizes biological activity to make more copies of a desired gene. The genes can be more effectively transferred into the DNA of a crop plant to make it have desired characteristics, such as insect and herbicide resistance. The vector can also be used to transfer a desired gene to human and animal cells, fungi, bacteria and other organisms.
