MELLO-FARIAS, Paulo Celso de  and  CHAVES, Ana Lúcia Soares. Advances in Agrobacterium-mediated plant transformation with enphasys on soybean. Sci. agric. (Piracicaba, Braz.) [online]. 2008, vol.65, n.1, pp.95-106. ISSN 1678-992X.

Soybean is one of humanity's major sources of plant protein. It is also very important for animal feed and as industrial raw material. Great advances have recently been achieved in its genetic transformation. This review provides a comprehensive discussion of important factors affecting Agrobacterium-mediated soybean transformation including target tissues, plant tissue health, wounding methods, regeneration systems, selectable markers and reporter genes.

Keywords : Glycine max; embryogenic tissue; sonication assisted Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (SAAT); green fluorescent protein (GFP).
