Ernie and Lotte Sears Plant Growth Facility


The goal of the Plant Transformation Core (PTC) at the University of Missouri is to enhance both basic and applied research in plant biology by providing fee-based plant transformation services. Currently, much of the transformation activities of the facility are focused on maize and soybean. However, the facility is well equipped for all aspects related to plant transformation, tissue culture, and plant growth.

Our Services

The PTC provides genetic transformation service for various plant species, as well as additional transformation-related services. More about our services.
