characterization and Bioassay of transgenic indica rices suitable
to Eastern India.
deals with the development of transgenic rices with genes
that confer additional levels of tolerance to different
biotic stresses like yellow stem borer (Bt genes), Sheath
blight (Chitinase gene) and Submergence (PDC gene).
The genes are
being cloned into suitable cloning vectors and the
transfornation is being attempted with a natural vector
of Agrobacterium tumifaciens.
