Transgenic plants

Biotechnology - Transgenic plants

Transgenic (modified) plants:

Currently, more than 50 types of genetically engineered plant species, termed as transgenic plants have been developed successfully. These plants were prepared to resist insect pests, viruses or herbicides by incorporation of foreign gene in the DNA of host plant cells. Primarily transgenic plants were built mainly in dicotyledons, but now extended to various monocotyledons such as wheat, maize, rice and oats. Transgenic plants have as well been developed and are appropriate for food industries (delaying ripening in tomato).

Gene pharming, the make use of transgenic plants like bioreactors/factories for production of speciality chemicals and pharmaceuticals is being pursued through some firms. Plants have been engineered to generate human proteins, like hormones, in their seeds. A weed that is known as mouse-eared cress has been engineered to generate a biodegradable plastic (polyhydroxybutyrate, or PHB) in tissue granules.
