*Note:  Estimated hours for the production of 10 independent in vitro transgenic events. This includes the time required for Agrobacterium transformation, colony PCR, restriction analysis, plant transformation, and confirmation of transgene presence by end PCR. The growth of the plants in the greenhouse is not included in this estimated.  For any request of more than 10 plants, an extra fee will be charged. Please check the rates for the greenhouses in our website.
