Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new agrobacterium strain for genetic transformation in plants. Agrobacterium is used to append a region of transfer DNA (T-DNA) of tumor-induced (Ti-)plasmid to a plant, and T-DNA is processed from virD1 and virD2 virulence proteins to achieve genetic transformation. Traditionally, this process often leads to undesired genetic alterations. Purdue researchers have optimized a process for synthesizing a new agrobacterium strain to transfer T-DNA without integrating it into the plant genome.
