    Dr Richard Espley

    Some plant species are not susceptible to Agrobacterium DNA integration, and in that case, we could use an alternative method for transforming a plant such as biolistics.

    Biolistics is like a gun that shoots tiny gold particles that are coated in DNA into the plant, and if you shoot enough of these particles into the leaf, for example, of a plant, some of it will get integrated and you get transformed cells.
