Development of transgenic pomegranate cv. Bhagwa for bacterial wilt resistance ; Agrobacterium and Biolistic mediated transgenic (Ongoing)

Primary tabs



  1. To develop regeneration protocol in pomegranate for application in generating transgenics, using explants of both mature and juvenile.
  2. To transform cv Bhagwa with AMP and PFLP genes and study transformation and expression and  to test transformants for expression of gene
  3. To field test the transgenic disease resistant plants and release them in farmers field
