  • Researchers Develop Gene Disruption Method for Plant Pathogen

    5 days ago - By ISAAA

    China Agricultural University scientists developed a gene disruption method for plant pathogen Botryosphaeria dothidea using polyethylene glycol-mediated protoplast transformation. The details of the method are published in BMC Biotechnology.Botryosphaeria dothidea causes apple white rot and infects several tree plants. Though the genome data for t...
