Objective: The WG1 Training School will focus on the transformation of cereal and Brassica crops. Participants will be asked which crop they would like to work with out of wheat, barley or Brassica. The main objective is to equip participants with the full set of skills such that they can set up the relevant transformation system in their own labs. This will include choosing the appropriate construct design, working with Agrobacterium, media preparation, isolation of explants, transformation, selection, regeneration, rooting and transfer to soil. It will also include initial molecular analysis of transgenic plants.
