We produce early flowering, transgenic and cis/intragenic mature citrus for research, field testing, and potential commercialization.
Ordering transgenic plants from the Mature Citrus Facility (MCF)
i). DNA of the vector is preferentially accepted and the MCF can transform it into Agrobacterium.
For commercialization of transgenics, the gus reporter gene, not gfp, should be used with nptII selection. The pCAMBIA2301 vector is recommended and can be provided prior to sub-cloning. At this time, the gfp reporter gene has not been deregulated for commercialization. If a transgenic plant with gfp looks promising in research, the transgenic must be remade with gus for commercialization. However, the gfp reporter gene and nptII selectable marker can be used for research purposes.
ii). We can sub-clone gene fragments into pCAMBIA2301 (discuss price with us).
