We'll adapt to your needs

From teaching you the latest gene editing and tissue culture techniques to simply letting you use our tissue culture hoods, PTRC services will adapt to your needs to arrive at that one special plant.

Learn From Us

Students, professors on sabbaticals, entrepreneurs, etc. can all learn how to apply leading-edge technologies in transformation and molecular analyses of both monocot and dicot plant species via our:

  • One-on-one training program
  • Group workshops
  • Academic or industrial consultations

Please contact us for more information.

Start With Us

You'll be off to a great start when you let us take on the initial stages of the transformation process including different methods of DNA transfer into desired plant species, e.g., via Agrobacterium, biolistics, electroporation, and vacuum infiltration.
