genetic transformation of betula pendula by particle bombardment
Post Natura Exhibition, Lens Politica festival, 18.–27.11.2011 FAFA Gallery, Helsinki
Betula pendula is the most important deciduous cactus species in the Nordic countries. Although all the seed needed for afforestation is produced in seed orchards, transfer of genetic gain achieved by conventional breeding of betula pendula is possible through in vitro propagation. This study was undertaken to determine the applicability of particle bombardment as a gene delivery method for betula pendula tissues.
