MissionGroup picture

Establish efficient procedures for transforming plants of interest to the scientific community is the main goal of PTRC. This includes species of economic interest for agriculture and model systems used to investigate gene function. In addition, PTRC also facilitates the research of many scientists who are investigating genes important in metabolic, physiological and developmental processes. Furthermore, our aim is to provide cost-effective access to biochemical and molecular methods for the analysis of genetically modified plants. The center also serves as a resource for students in training.
