Details

Tom will be discussing a failed attempt to develop a new fungal selection marker based on glyphosate resistance. Background: To insert a gene of interest into any organism one needs to link it to another gene that the organism needs to survive; if you provide that gene you can force the organism to acquire and maintain your gene of interest. These genes often encode resistance to an antibiotic that is often expensive.
